Image result for don quixote"

Pray look better, Sir… those things yonder are no giants, but windmills.   Miguel de Cervantes

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ( 29 September 1547 (assumed) – 22 April 1616 NS) was a Spanish writer who is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the Spanish language and one of the world’s pre-eminent novelists. His novel Don Quixote has been translated into over 140 languages and dialects; it is, after the Bible, the most-translated book in the world.

The well-known portrait, supposedly by Juan de Jáuregui, mentioned in the prologue of the Exemplary Novels. It has not been authenticated, and the names of Cervantes and Jáuregui on it were added centuries after it was painted. No authenticated image of Cervantes exists, and the Jáuregui painting is lost.[a][2][3]
