Actually, Einstein didn’t discover Black Holes.

The first attempt was done by John Michell, a Philosopher, in 1783. He described that there can be a number of stars that are so massive that the light emitted by them is quickly dragged back due to the star’s strong gravity.

It was only in 20th century when Karl Schwarzschild used the revolutionary equations of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity to prove the existence of Black Holes.
