Beethoven also had a sister and two brothers in his family; his sister was named Marie Margaretha Josepha; the brothers were Caspar Carl, and Nikolaus Johann.

      Beethoven went to primary school, but not high school,    but attended philosophy courses at the University of Bonn in   his teens. This time, Beethoven was happy and had lot of        friends including other composers and music lovers. Although Beethoven’s relationships with his friends improved, his          relationships with his family continued to be strained,              especially with his brother Carl. Beethoven was very involved with Carl’s son, Karl, and even seemed to consider him a son instead of a nephew. Beethoven eventually died on March      26, 1827 from his last illness which was pneumonia as well as a liver condition.
