Best Answer

Trigonometry has been developed over centuries, and was not discovered per-se by any one person. One might say that Pythagoras is the father of trigonometry because the Pythagorean theorem is so central to trigonometric theory, but many cultures were aware of the Pythagorean theorem before Pythagoras was even born.
