Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was an English novelist best known for his adventure stories such as King Solomon's Mines (1885) and She: A History of Adventure (1886).

Haggard was born June 22, 1856 in Norfolk, England, the son of Ella and William Haggard. He attended Ipswich Grammar School and upon graduating failed the army entrance exam. His father sent him to London to prepare for a job in the Foreign Office. Haggard did not sit for the British Foreign Office exam, but instead travelled to Africa as an unpaid member of the Lieutenant-Governor of South Africa, Sir Henry Bulwer's, staff. Although Haggard secured a position in Africa that afforded him the means to marry his love from home, Mary Elizabeth Jackson ("Lilly," as she was called by friends), she had already married a well-to-do banker. In August 1880, having returned to England, Haggard married Louisa Margitson with whom he had four children.

Haggard went on to have a career as a successful writer, becoming Britain's foremost adventure novelist. As a political figure, he was involved in agricultural reform and knighted for public service in 1912. In 1919, he was made Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Haggard died May 14, 1925 in London, England.
