His father Immanuel Nobel was a skilled engineer and inventor. His brother Emil died due to an explosion caused by nitroglycerin. Alfred Nobel patented his invention of dynamite in 1867, and by the time of his death, he had acquired 355 patents in his name. Before his death, Alfred Nobel owned more than 90 factories worldwide that produced explosives and ammunition. He also founded the Nobel prizes named after him. This prize is presented annually in Oslo, in the presence of the King of Norway, on December 10, the death anniversary of Alfred Nobel.
The first Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in 1901 to Henry Dunant (Switzerland) and Frédéric Passy (France). The Peace Prize is the only prize that is not presented in Stockholm. In October 2014, Malala, along with Indian children's rights activist Kailash Satyarthi, was named a Nobel Peace Prize winner. At age 17, she became the youngest person to receive this prize.
