Abraham Ortelius (Abraham Ortels) (14 April 1527 – 28 June 1598) was a cartographer and geographer, generally recognized as the creator of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World). He is also believed to be the first person to imagine that the continents were joined together before drifting to their present positions.
