Sancho Panza is a fictional character in the novel Don Quixote written by Spanish author Don Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra in 1605. Sancho acts as squire to Don Quixote and provides comments throughout the novel, known as sanchismos, that are a combination of broad humour, ironic Spanish proverbs, and earthy wit. ""Panza"" in Spanish means ""belly"" (cf. English ""paunch,"" Italian ""pancia"", several Italian dialects ""panza"", Portuguese ""pança"", French ""panse""). -Drawing by Pauquet, 1853.-
