Karl Marx was born on May 5, 1818. He was one of nine children in a Jewish family. He later converted to Christianity later in life. He was educated at home until he was 12. He then spent 5 years at the Jesuit high school in Trier. After this he studied at the university of Bonn. After this, he received his doctorate from the university of Jena. He then came up with the governmental system of socialism. Based off of this type of government, he came up with conflict theory which states that society is in constant competition for limited resources. He authored many things in his life.
