  Niels Henrik Abel
Niels Henrik Abel was one of the most prominent mathematicians of the world in the first half of the 19th century.
Niels Henrik Abel was born on August 05, 1802 in Finnøy, an island near the Norwegian town of Stavanger.
Abel’s father was a member of the session of the Norwegian Parliament (Storting) that was specially convened in 1814 with a specific purpose—rewriting the Norwegian constitution reflecting union with Sweden in place of Denmark.

 Abel biography
Niels Abel, the second of seven children, was one year old when his grandfather died and his father was appointed to succeed him as the minister at Gjerstad.
Abel's father was, however, important in the politics of Norway and, after Sweden gained control of Norway in 1814, he was involved in writing a new constitution for Norway as a member of the Storting, the Norwegian legislative body.
Abel was encouraged by Crelle to write a clearer version of his work on the insolubility of the quintic and this resulted in Recherches sur les fonctions elliptiques which was published in 1827 in the first volume of Crelle's Journal, along with six other papers by Abel.

 Trivia - Niels Henrik Abel
Niels Henrik Abel (August 5, 1802—April 6, 1829), Norway mathematician, was born in Finnøy.
Abels first notable work was a proof of the impossibility of solving the quintic equation by radicals (see Abel-Ruffini theorem.) This investigation was first published in 1824 in abstruse and difficult form, and afterwards (1826) more elaborately in the first volume of Crelles Journal.
In 1826 Abel moved to Paris, and during a ten month stay he met the leading mathematicians of France, but he was poorly appreciated, as his work was scarcely known, and his modesty restrained him from proclaiming his researchings.

 Niels Henrik Abel
Niels Henrik Abel (1802-1829), Norwegian mathematician, was born at Findoe on the 25th of August 1802.
In 1815 he entered the cathedral school at Christiania (as Oslo was then called), and three years later he gave proof of his mathematical genius by his brilliant solutions of the original problems proposed by Bernt Holmboe.
Under Abel's guidance, the prevailing obscurities of analysis began to be cleared, new fields were entered upon and the study of functions so advanced as to provide mathematicians with numerous ramifications along which progress could be made.
