Oscar Wilde was born on October 16, 1854 in Dublin Ireland. He grew up with 5 siblings: William, Henry, Mary, Emily and Isola.His father was Sir William Wilde was a respected surgeon. His mother, Francesca Elgee Wilde, was a flamboyant a dramatic person who, before her marriage, published revolutionary poems under the pen name "Speranza." Oscar was the second of the couple's three children, and also had three half-siblings that Sir William Wilde fathered before his marriage.

When Oscar was nine, Wilde began his studies at the Portora Royal School in Enniskillen, Ireland. At the age of sixteen, he registered at Trinity College in Dublin. Wilde was an exceptional student. He took interest in the classics and was awarded the Berkeley Gold Medal, the highest honor available to classics students at Trinity. He competed for a scholarship to Oxford University's Magdalen College and won it. In 1874, twenty-year-old Oscar Wilde headed over to England to study at Oxford.

Oscar Wilde had two sons: Cyril (1885-1915) and Vyvyan (1886-1967). They idealized their father. They were dressed very fashionably, in matching outfits like satin cavalier outfits, Little Lord Fauntleroy suits, sailor suits, and other outfits. Following Wilde's disgrace, Constance Lloyd took the children to Switzerland. She changed the family name to Holland. The children were registered in an English-language school in Germany. All through school the boys had to disguise their identity, although they were never told why. They were left to worry as to what terrible crime he had committed. Constance died only a few years late (in 1898), and the boys were brought back to England, but separated. Both boys served in World War I. Cyril was killed (in 1915). Vyvyan went on to write the book Son of Oscar Wilde. Vyvyan's son Merlin is also a writer and wrote a biography on Oscar. The family has kept the name Holland, never reverting to Wilde.
