This year 1905 is termed as a golden year for Albert because he published very important papers on the following which made him known worldwide instantaneously
Quantum theory of light
General Theory of relativity and special theory of relativity
Mass and energy equivalence.
He was offered a professorship at the University of Berlin and a full-time membership in the Prussian academy of sciences in the year 1914. His wife didn’t like go with him and she stayed in Zurich along with her two sons. Due to some reasons, they were divorced and he married his Elsa Lowenthal who is very closely related to him. In 1920 he was appointed to a life long honorary visiting professorship in the University of Leiden in Holland. Albert Einstein

After the death of Albert Einstein, his brain was removed from his body by Thomas Harvey for his research. Eventually, he was fired out from the Princeton university for doing it. He made it into 200parts and observed that parietal lobes which are responsible for mathematical, visual, spatial coordination are 15%larger for Einstein than normal human being.
