How was fractal geometry developed?

The ideas behind fractal geometry came out of work undertaken in the 19th century by mathematicians like Bernard Bolzano, Bernhard Riemann and Karl Weierstrass. They were studying functions which were continuous [everywhere] but not differentiable [almost anywhere]. The term "fractal" was first used by a modern mathematician called Benoit Mandelbrot.
