Known for the invention of dynamite, Alfred Bernhard Nobel (1833-1896) was a Swedish chemist, engineer, innovator, and armaments manufacturer. In 1888, a French newspaper mistakenly published an obituary for Alfred Nobel, which called him the “merchant of death.” It is believed that this prompted Nobel to reflect on how he would be remembered, and he subsequently made provision for the establishment of the Nobel Peace Prizes.
