Atlantida is a novel by French author Pierre Benoit, first published in 1919. In the year 1896, in the French Algerian Sahara, two officers, André de Saint-Avit and Jean Morhange, embark on an investigation to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of their comrades. However, they are abducted by a Targui warrior who is working for Queen Antinea, a descendant of the rulers of Atlantis. Antinea is a monstrous figure who has a cave with 120 niches, each meant for one of her lovers. At present, only 53 niches are occupied, and Antinea seeks to fill them all so that she can sit on a throne in the center of the cave and rest for eternity. Atlantida has been adapted many times into films.
