Pitkin is proud to introduce the tale of one man's ascent from relatively humble origins to international legend.
To many, Walter Raleigh was a pirate, traitor, scholar, coloniser, explorer, soldier, poet, adventurer, scientist, cartographer, botanist, fashionista and Favourite of a queen.
He is credited with introducing tobacco and potatoes to England.
Although not everything he did resulted in success, his exploits never lacked ambition or self-confidence.
He left his mark on England, parts of Europe and America.
