On October 2, 1869, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Porbandar, a coastal city in the Indian state of Gujarat. To celebrate the anniversary of his birth, we’ve put together these trivia questions.

Did Gandhi Marry and Have Children?

This life-size wax likeness of Gandhi is on display at Madame Tussauds Bangkok. When he was only a 13-year-old schoolboy, Gandhi married Kasturba Makhanji, the 14-year-old daughter of a wealthy merchant. Although it was an arranged marriage — Gandhi was engaged to Kasturba when he was only 7 — the couple were happy together and had four children — all sons. Although Gandhi took a vow of celibacy in 1906 for reasons of self-discipline and spirituality, Mohandas and Kasturba stayed together until her death in 1944.

What Was Gandhi’s Profession?

At least some of Gandhi’s ashes are said to be entombed within this stone memorial located at the Aga Khan Palace in Pune, India. Gandhi’s father served as the “diwan,” or chief minister, of the Porbandar region. He had three sons with his fourth wife Putlibai, Mohandas being the youngest. Mohandas was also considered the most promising candidate to someday succeed his father as diwan. To prepare him for a future role in politics, Gandhi’s parents saw to it that he got the best education possible.

Gandhi’s father died in 1885 and was succeeded by Gandhi’s uncle, Tulsidas, who helped to convince Gandhi’s mother that the next logical step in preparing Mohandas for a future as a leader was to qualify as a barrister in London. After her son promised her that he would abstain from sex, meat, and alcohol while in London, Putlibai reluctantly gave her consent, and Mohandas sailed off to the United Kingdom.
