Best Answer

Siddhartha Gautama created Buddhism. He was a wealthy prince who was born around 563 BC. When he was traveling outside of the palace walls he saw many people who were ill, homeless and suffering. He invented Buddhism to teach people that to find the truth about the world they had to give up all desires.
