Allan Quatermain is a fictional character, the protagonist of H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines and its various sequels and prequels. Allan Quatermain was also the title of an 1887 book in this sequence.
Quatermain is an English big game hunter in Africa. While not precisely anti-colonial in his outlook, he appears to strongly favour native Africans having a say in how their affairs are run, a rather progressive outlook for a Victorian. Quatermain is a quintessential outdoorsman who finds English cities and climate unbearable, and thus prefers to spend most of his time on the African continent, where he is known to the natives as "Macumazahn" or "He who watches in the night". Quatermain frequently travels with his English companions Sir Henry Curtis and Captain John Good of the Royal Navy, his African friend Umslopogaas, and his Hottentot servant Hans. He went to school at Eton College.
