Cervantes was the son of a surgeon, who had an interesting litany of jobs
before he wrote his most famous novel "Don Quixote". In 1569, he went to
Rome and worked as a chamber assistant to a cardinal. He later enlisted in
the Spanish Navy, and was captured by pirates, with whom he spent five years
in captivity. He then worked as a purchaser for the Spanish Armada and a tax
collector for the Spanish government. It was at this time that his accounts
were looked over, and several discrepancies found due to his embezzlement of
funds, something not exactly uncommon during the time. It is said that the
idea for "Don Quixote" came to Cervantes while he was in prison.
