Rafael Sabatini (1875 - 1950) was an Italian/English writer of novels of romance and adventure.
Sabatini was born in Italy, to an English mother and Italian father - both opera singers. At a young age, Rafael was exposed to many languages, living with his grandfather in England, attending school in Portugal, and, as a teenager, in Switzerland. By the time he was 17, when he returned to England to live permanently, he had mastered five languages. He quickly added a sixth language &mdash English &mdash to his linguistic collection. He consciously chose to write in his adopted language, because, he said, “all the best stories are written in English".
