Try "Amram" the husband of Yochevet, the father of Miryam, Aharon and Moshe
It's still interesting that we don't learn more about him. -Zoe
He was a grandson of Levi, the son of Yakov.
I think it's a truism that great men often come from not-so-great fathers. Maybe Amram wasn't that impressive a guy. Or, perhaps Moshe is seen as starting a new page in history, so his identity as a son is not emphasized. He's just "Moshe", not "Moshe ben Amram." Actually, it's his father-in-law that was much more influential on him and on history. Lesson there: choose your father-in-law wisely?
I just find it curious that we know so very little about him.
His father in law actually made him lots of problems, kept him locked up in jail for 10 years etc, it was only because he was able to pull the staff that was in his front yard out of the ground, that he was forced to give him his daughter.
Amram, Moshe's father, was the leader of his generation: Maseches Sotah 12aand other great quotes under Moses's Family and his Birth.
