Well Martin Luther King Had Only 1 Son And He Was Born In July 17;)


On January 15, 1929, a son was born to the Reverend and Mrs. Martin Luther King, Sr., in Atlanta, Georgia.


He was named Michael at birth and his father later renamed him Martin Luther as he renamed himself. He was the son of the Reverend Micheal King, Sr. and Alberta Williams King. Martin Luther King, Jr., was originally named "Michael King, Jr.", until the family traveled to Europe in 1934 and visited Germany. His father soon changed both of their names to Martin in honor of the German Protestant Martin Luther. Yeah, he thought that "Martin Luther" had a cool ring to it. He really wasn't Martin Luther King Jr. His real name is Michael King Jr. He was really born as, Michael and died Michael, he never legally changed his name.


Originally "Martin Luther King, Sr." was known as "Michael King", but stated that HIS father had given him the name "Martin". Martin Luther King, Jr. was officially and legally "Michael King" for his entire life, which was ascribed to an error on the part of the family doctor who delivered him. The father and son apparently adopted the name "Luther" after a trip to Germany in 1934, when Martin Luther King, Junior, was 5 years of age. (see link) The original Protestant reformer, Martin Luther, may also have changed the spelling of his family name from "Ludher" or "Luder", as some references to alternate spellings exist.


The civil rights leader's name change from Michael to Martin: Martin Luther King Jr.'s father legally changed both his and his son's names, making himself a senior and his son a junior, when his son was 6 years old.
