Born and brought up in New York, Icahn is what one would call a typical New Yorker, clever and street-smart.
His parents were both school teachers, so we could say that his childhood was pretty much that of a very normal New York family.
After his schooling, Icahn seemed to have become a bit confused about the career path he should choose.
He attended university to graduate in arts and later for some reason, chose to study medicine.
However, he dropped out of medical school and went on to join the army. A few years in the army later, he started off his wall street career.

Carl Icahn Personal Life and Family
Carl Icahn Parents
Little is known of Icahn’s parents. His father was an opera singer but got frustrated and later became a synagogue cantor. He was said to be a “dogmatic atheist.”
He moved on to become a substitute teacher and a lawyer. Icahn’s mother was a schoolteacher from Brooklyn and was afraid to socialize with the world.
The family was of Jewish descent. According to Icahn, his father never made any money and thus, Carl was always driven to excel.
Carl Icahn Spouse(s) – Liba Trejbal (ex), Gail Golden (Current)
Carl marriedLiba, a Czech ballerina, in 1979. However, they separated in 1993 and after years of litigation, divorced in 1999.
Liba wanted to nullify a prenuptial agreement signed by her claiming duress since she was pregnant at the time of the marriage.
Liba refused to accept Carl’s offer of $1.5 million a year because his net worth was to the tune of billions at the time. Later, the couple settled for an unknown amount of money.
In 1999, Carl married Gail Golden, who had long been his assistant and was a former broker.
Gail is the founder of Gutsy Women Travel, a company taking care of luxury trips for women who want to travel without their husbands.

Children of Carl Icahn and Gail Golden
Shana L. Golden (Step Child from Gail Golden)
Christie R. Golden (Step Child from Gail Golden)
Gail, Carl’s second wife, has two children from a previous marriage.
In 1961, Icahn started as an investor and by 1968, started his company Icahn & Co.
With his company, he was a major investor and held important positions in some of the biggest companies of the United States like the Nabisco, Western Union, Viacom, Motorola, Time Warner, and some others.
Most of Icahn’s assets went to the American Real Estate Partners which was, later on, named the Icahn Enterprises.
Icahn’s investing strategies have always fascinated people. What the rest of the world would sign off as a bad investment was something that Icahn always invested in.
And surprisingly enough, it would work for him as some sort of a miracle. It was as if he had this really rare insight into judging what a good investment was and what wasn’t.
“Don’t always believe what the market tells you. If you think you’re right, stick to your instinct” was what he would often advise his co-investors.
His trust with Trans-World Airlines, the U.S. Steel, Motorola and turning them around are all examples of such contrarian investment strategies, as financial experts would call it.
