Compared with his older half-siblings, Barron Trump, who turned 12 on March 20, has mostly stayed out of the political spotlight. Here's what you need to know about the youngest member of the Trump clan.

Just weeks before heading back to school, Barron was photographed arriving in D.C. with his parents on Air Force One.

The First Family reportedly spent the weekend in New Jersey at Trump's golf course in Bedminster.

In April, he made a rare public appearance at the Annual White House Egg Roll.

Barron hung back with his parents and watched his younger nieces and nephews race off to hunt for eggs.

The three most recent presidents-Obama, Bush, and Clinton-have been fathers only to girls. While other presidents since JFK’s time have had sons, they’ve all been adults who lived outside of the White House.

He is making history by attending St. Andrew's Episcopal School.

While every president’s child over the past 35 years has attended Sidwell Friends, the White House has confirmed Barron is attendending St. Andrew’s in Potomac, Maryland. He is the first presidential child to do so. In a statement, Melania praised the school for “its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.”

He’s fluent in both English and Slovene.

Thanks to his Slovenian mother, Melania.

Barron is really tall.

When’s the last time you saw a sixth grader nearly as tall as his dad and former-model mom? While Barron’s official height isn’t publicly available, photos show he is only a few inches shorter than 6’2” President Trump and near the height of 5’11” Melania (without her ever-present heels, anyway).

He took his time moving to the White House.

After months of living in New York City with his mom, Barron finally made the move to Washington, D.C. in June, halfway through the president's first year in office. First Lady Melania Trump confirmed the news with a tweet saying, "Looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home! #Movingday" and a photo presumably taken out one of the White House windows of the Washington Monument.

The White House may actually be a downgrade.

In his parents' Trump Tower penthouse, Barron had a whole floor to himself, which his mother referred to as "Barron's living room." What does a nine-year-old do with his own living room? We may never know.

Also unknown: exactly how much it cost the New York City taxpayers to protect Melania and Barron during their time in Manhattan, making the decision to stay behind a controversial one. CNNMoney reported it cost more than $1 million per day to provide security for President Trump and his family while he was still living in New York after the election.
