A biography tells the story of a real person's life. This can be someone who live long ago, recently, or someone who is still living. It involves more than just the basic facts like date of birth, education, work, relationships, and - when applicable - death. It portrays a person's experience of these life events.
An autobiography is a biography written by the person the story is about.
