At the same time as Matthias Schleiden...
While Robert was using his mircoscope looking at a piece of cork, the cork looked like "cells" which as in the cell that monks used to sleep in, which then Robert coined the term "the cell".
These chambers in this cork look like the cells that monks used to sleep in.
I will call this a cork cell!

Wait a minute...All plants have cells!
Theodore has been studying animals for a while then also all of a sudden realized that all animals have cells.
Wait a minute...All animals have cells!
Cells don't come from free cell formation!
While Schleiden was disagreeing with Schawnn about cells coming from nowhere, Rudolf Virchow prooved that cells came form pre existing cells. Later on, it was found out that Virchow actually copied the research of Robert Remak without permission.
Actually cells come from pre- existing cells according to my research
