He left a note in meca, an ancient reek text on Mathematics, laim that his proof for the-was too large to fit in the -margin; this uncertainty of whether there was actually a proof or not has spurred on many mathematicians for many years to find the proof, until this was done so by Andrew Wiles in 1995

Also one of the most well known theorems, Fermat's Last Theorem is so difficult that is has even been added into the Guinness Book of World Records for 'most difficult math problem'.

Here is a video that tells you all about its discovery, history and the proof.
