Abraham Ortelius (1527–1598) was a Flemish/Netherlandish cartographer and geographer, conventionally recognised as the creator of the first modern atlas, the “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum” (Theatre of the World). One of the founders and the notable representatives of the Netherlandish school of cartography in its golden age (the 16th and 17th centuries), he is also believed to be the first person to imagine that the continents were joined together before drifting to their present positions. ¤
