# Who proved Fundamental Theorem of algebra using Liouville's theorem?

One of the most famous proofs of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra involves Liouville's theorom stating that a bounded entire function in constant.

Who first came up to the idea of deriving FToA from Liouville's theorem? Was it Liouville himself?

I would be also grateful for information about when this proof was found.
