Lili Elbe, that is the name of the first transgender person ever documented in history. She was born in 1882 in Germany, her birth name was Einar Magnus Andrea.

She was the first transgender woman who also had sex reassignment surgery. She began to realize what she really wanted when in a painting, she was asked to stand in for the artist wearing stockings and heels.
