Röntgen, who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901, was born on March 27, 1845, at Lennep in the Lower Rhine Province of Germany. He was the only child of a merchant and manufacturer of cloth. His mother was Charlotte Constanze Frowein of Amsterdam. When he was 3, his family moved to Apeldoorn in the Netherlands, where he went to the Institute of Martinus Herman van Doorn, a boarding school.
