Sir Henry Morton Stanley, GCB (born John Rowlands; 28 January 1841 - 10 May 1904) was a Welsh-American journalist and explorer who was famous for his exploration of central Africa and his search for missionary and explorer David Livingstone. Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley reportedly asked, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"

He was knighted in 1899.
