She was named the, "Queen of Crime," because she wrote so many Poirot and other murder mysteries.

She married Archibald Christie in 1914. Their daughter was born in 1919. Agatha's first marriage came to an end in 1926, shortly after her mother's death. She was devastated and pretended to have disappeared but was later found in a hotel in Yorkshire. In 1930 Agatha married her second husband Sir Max Mallowan with whom she was very happy.

Agatha visited Kent's Cavern and got the idea for her first novel called "The Man in the Brown Suit", first published in 1924.
