    Every schoolchild knows that in 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue But what about the year before that Did anything of note happen in 1491 Well, as any reader of H Rider Haggard s 31st novel, Margaret, will discover, the answer is plenty Margaret, which Haggard wrote from 1905 06, was initially published in London in September 1907 under the title Fair Margaret, and here in the U.S with the shortened title a month later It is one of Haggard s historical fictions, but unlike some of his other historicals, such as 1911 s Red Eve, this one contains absolutely no fantasy elements to speak of, but is rather a straightforward swashbuckler, told in a full blooded, forthright manner.In this exciting tale, we meet Margaret Castell, the beautiful daughter of John Castell, one of London s wealthiest merchants Margaret is engaged to Peter Brome, a gallant ex soldier, and when she and her servant, Betty Dene, are shanghaied and kidnapped by the Spanish Marquis of Morella, who has taken a hot blooded fancy to her, Peter and Castell embark on a quest to save them Thus, Haggard treats us to adventures on the high seas Peter s duel with Morella on board a sinking ship in the midst of a raging storm would easily serve as the climax of most books here, it comes not even halfway through and in the cities of Moorish Granada and Seville to courtroom cases before King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella themselves and to a daring rescue from the clutches ...
