He was born on March 27, 1845, in Lenep, Prussia, (now Remshide, Germany). The only child of his parents, Rontgen, was not well educated at an early age. In 1848, his family moved to Holland and settled there. Rontgen, who did not have the privilege of studying there, went to Zurich in Switzerland and enrolled in an engineering institute. There Rontgen came in contact with a physics teacher named August Kundutt. His influence fell on Rontgen and was attracted to physics. After this, he gradually began to study the subject.
