Friedrick Henry Royce was born in Alwalton in England in 1863. His family used to run a wheat flour mill. But it didn't see good sales. That's why they shifted to London. Friedrick was just 9 when his father breathed his last. Thus, to keep his household moving, Friedrick had to do part time jobs like selling newspapers and distributing telegrams.

After growing up, with the help of his aunt, he went to a town in England and began working in the Northern Railway. After few years, he returned back to London and joined a Light and power company where his work was to work with the street lights. In this way he had saved some of his income.

In 1884, with one of his friends, he opened a start up named FH Royce and company. This company made small electric parts. After ten years, the company had started making Dynamo generators and other good equipments. Then, the company name was registered. However, the emerging trends of generators from the U.S.A led this company bear much loss. So, Friedrick decided to manufacture cars. He worked hard to know more about the cars and then, in 1904, he made his first car.

From here starts the journey of Charles Royce. He had a big showroom in London and he was impressed with the car of Friedrick Henry Royce. Further, they decided to be partners. The business deal worked out perfectly with the technical knowledge of Royce and business know of Rolls. Thus, the company was named Rolls Royce. In 1907, the company manufactured such a car that later it was called the best car of the world.

Unfortunately, Rolls died in an aeroplane accident and after that, Royce didn't lose hope. He kept marching forward with his designs and manufacturing. In 1921, due to increasing demand, a new factory was opened at Massachusetts and introduced Eagle engine. Few years later after making the Springfield car, Royce acquired Bentley company.

But unfortunately, in 1933, Royce breathed his last. In 1951, the company made its first luxury car. Gradually, it provided jobs to almost 80,000 people and became the 14th largest company of Britain in terms of man power. Towards 1989, Rolls Royce was sold out to BMW and Volkswagen.
