Creator: H. Rider Haggard
Henry Rider Haggard (1856 1925), English writer of adventure stories, often set in Africa (he had spent seven years in South Africa as a young man).

His two best-known novels are King Solomon's Mines, in which a group of Englishmen, guided by the hunter Allan Quatermain, go in search of the eponymous treasure chamber; and She, in which Leo Vincey and Horace Holly are guided by a Vincey heirloom to a lost African kingdom ruled by the immortal queen Ayesha, whose subjects call her "She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed". Both have numerous prequels and sequels — including (perhaps inevitably) She and Allan, which is a prequel to both — and both have been filmed multiple times.
