The earliest recorded beginnings of geometry can be traced to ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Indus Valley from around 3000 BC.

The "Geometry" that is taught all over the world at schools and universities is the Euclidean geometry. The main principles of it were described by Euclid in his "Elements". That is why Euclid is considered to be the founder of the geometry.But there some other "geometries" that differ from the Euclidean one. For example the most well-known among them is the Lobachevsky's geometry. Lobachevsky, as I know, has proved that some Euclidean axioms do not always work.Who actually did develop Geometry, nobody knows. It is believed that the first geometricians were Greeks (Thales, Pythagor, Plato and others). But as I said geometry as a field of sciencs was first developed by Euclid.
