Edgar’s father had a drinking problem when he was younger which led him to abandon him once his little sister Rosalie was born. He was just two years old at that time. To make matters worse, Before Edgar was even three years old his mother Eliza Poe fell very ill with tuberculosis causing her to not make it leaving Edgar an orphan without his mother or father no longer in his life. He was then adopted by a couple named Francis and John Allan, both very wealthy people. This is where Edgar gets his middle name from, now becoming Edgar Allen Poe.

His now father John Allan put him through the best schools in town where He excelled in all subjects because he received the best education in Richmond Virginia. In 1825 Edgar attended University of Virginia at Charlottesville but were later told to drop out because of financial complications with his father, leading their relationship to deteriorate.
