The famous Mileva Marić was most recognized for being the ex wife of the famous Albert Einstein. She was born on December 19, 1875 into a wealthy family in Titel, Serbia. She was the eldest daughter of three children, and her parents were named Marija Ružić, and Miloš Marić. While in grade school she had thirst for knowledge and exceeded in physics and Mathematics. Being she was so well educated she was able to attend an all boys school in Zagreb as a teenager. While first attending school at the University of Zurich, she was studying medicine but decided to change her major after just one semester. Mileva decided to attend the Zurich Polytechnic School(ETH) in which she majored in teaching, mainly in the categories of Physics and Mathematics. Mileva was “nearly 21, and only the fifth woman to be accepted by the ETH(Source 3)”. She was very successful her first two years of college. While attending the University she met a man enrolled in similar courses, named Albert Einstein, who shared the same love for science. She was a bit older than him as he was only 17. Albert was the oldest child who was born into a Jewish couple in Munich, Germany. Albert Einstein went unnoticed to Mileva for a while. It wasn’t until she spent a semester in Heidelberg, Germany that they began to exchange letters and find interest in one another. Einstein begged for her return and when she finally did their friendship evolved into a relationship. Her parents were very accepting of their relationship while his parents were against them due to him being several years younger and them differing in cultural and religious backgrounds. As their relationship evolved, she was failing in the area of studies terribly. In 1900 she had failed her final exams and Einstein graduated and began looking for work. She decided to stay in Zurich and work as a lab assistant and continue to prepare for her exams. Once Again she miserably failed her exams. Around this difficult time in her studies Mileva discovered she was pregnant with Einstein’s child. As a result she decided to stay with her parents. She had high hopes this would tie the two together. Einstein became a substitute teacher 20 miles North of Zurich, which paid very poorly. “He began to make up excuses to avoid seeing her(source 3).” In January 1902, Mileva gave birth to their daughter and named her Lieserl in Novi Sad. There were rumors about whether she was given up for adoption or even came down with Scarlet Fever. No indications of Einstein ever going to meet his child were ever found. “As 1902 drew to a close Mileva turned 27. Mileva’s academic failure illegitimate child would have made her feel like something of a family disgrace(source 3).” Albert, on the other hand was on the brink of his most productive scientific years and at the age of 23 was employed by the Swiss Patent Office in Bern. On January 6, 1903 Mileva and Albert married at Bern City Hall. He was 24 and she 28. It was known that when they proceeded to live together following the marriage their daughter did not join them. Her whereabouts will continue to be a mystery. As their marriage began Albert was working six days a week at the Swiss Patent Office and spending his free time on physics. Mileva was having a terrible time coping with the loss of their daughter and her academic failure, especially after the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Marie and Pierre Curie. As the years passed they continue to get better and in 1905 Albert received a raise and she gave birth to their first son Hans Albert. “Albert published his four scientific papers that each marked an important breakthrough. Mileva told a Serbian friend “We finished some important work that will make my husband world famous” (source 3).” During this time he introduced the theory of relativity and formula E=mc2. In 1910 Mileva gave birth to their second son Eduard. Shortly before this Albert quit his job at the Swiss Patent Office to…
Biography of a Famous Person
Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14th, 1879. His father was a featherbed salesman. When Einstein was five years old his father game him a pocket compass.

Einstein was a great pioneer for science in physics so great in fact that he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his services to theoretical physics. He discovered the general theory of relativity. Later he also established the quantum theory. He also discovered law of the photoelectric effect.
Einstein is also famous for E=m2 which is energy equals mass squared. The nickname for this is mass and energy equivalence. Consequences of this…
German physicist, Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein is referred to as the “Father of Physics” and is a household name in modern society for his profound discoveries made in the sciences. Einstein was not just a quantum physicist; he was a revolutionary in which he pursued his beliefs by not conforming into the universal knowledge.
Einstein was born into a Jewish middle-class family on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany (Bodanis 26). His parents, Hermann and Pauline Einstein, were very temperate of their…

Mention Albert Einstein and the first things that come to mind are genius, mathematician, and physicist. Some would think of the Special Theory of Relativity and the well-known equation E=mc2 (energy = mass times the speed of light squared). His 1905 paper on how light moved through space was so revolutionary…
Albert Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he later on began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium. Later, they moved to Italy and Albert continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland and in 1896 he entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to be trained as a teacher in physics and mathematics. In 1901, the year he gained his diploma, he acquired Swiss citizenship and, as he was unable to find a teaching…

Albert Einstein was an outside-the-box thinker; he questioned the beliefs of people such as Isaac Newton. He barely talked until age three because he would analyze what he was planning to sat and decide not to say it anyway. He hated high school because he could not find the reasoning in their authority, and he did not respect the process of memorization because the knowledge was shallow. Einstein was not social, and he was not the best employee…
