    The movies are not very accurate in their portrayal of Conan and Hyboria.

    Cinmerios ----> Highlanders with bronce/tan skin and dark hair, often with gray eyes, tall people. (Very old inhabitants of the West, survivors of the sunken Atlantis.)
    Atlantis stems from Greek mythology

    True, and the most of books are not written by Robert E Howard. There are many good stories of the original author, enough to fill ten books, are also the best by far, is a shame that no one film is based on these stories.

    this is the best drawing of Conan, in my opinion, based on the original description of Robert E Howard.




    hair straight and dense, black as the plumage of a crow.
