Vesalius was one of four children from a very influential family of physicians and pharmacists, many of who personally attended royalty. At age 15, Vesalius moved to Leuven where he enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and attended the trilingual college founded by Erasmus from Rotterdam. It was here that Vesalius benefited from a new approach to languages, which would later allow him to access and compare original anatomical texts.
