Drake, Francis. Sir Francis Drake (c. 1540-1596) was an English privateer. In 1935 he appeared as the hero of the Spanish dime novel Francis Drake. El Corsario Misterioso #1-59 (1935-1936).

The Francis Drake of Francis Drake is portrayed in mixed terms, halfway between the traditional English hagiography and the traditional Spanish condemnation of Drake.

Drake appears in stories with titles like “A Desperate Love” and “A Promise in Blood.”
