Rafael Sabatini (29 April 1875 – 13 February 1950) was an Italian/English writer of novels of romance and adventure.

He is best known for his worldwide best-sellers:

The Sea Hawk (1915), a tale of an Elizabethan Englishman among the pirates of the Barbary Coast

Scaramouche (1921), a tale of the French Revolution in which a fugitive hides out in a commedia dell'arte troupe and later becomes a fencing master (Sabatini wrote a sequel ten years later: Scaramouche the Kingmaker (1931))

Captain Blood (a.k.a. The Odyssey of Captain Blood) (1922), in which the title character is admiral of a fleet of pirate ships. (Sabatini wrote two additional Captain Blood books comprising short stories, but they are not sequels: The Chronicles of Captain Blood (a.k.a. Captain Blood Returns) (1931), and The Fortunes of Captain Blood (1936))[2]

Bellarion the Fortunate (1926), about a cunning young man who finds himself immersed in the politics of fifteenth-century Italy

In all, Sabatini produced 31 novels, eight short story collections, six non-fiction books, numerous uncollected short stories, and a play.--Wikipedia.
