Karel Capek

Karel Capek (1890–1938) was one of the most influential Czech writers of the 20th century. He introduced and made popular the frequently used international word robot, which first appeared in his play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) in 1921. Karel credited his brother, Josef Capek, as the true inventor of the word robot.

Capek was born in Malé Svatonovice, Bohemia, Austria-Hungary (now the Czech Republic).
