I will review how massive black holes may have formed in the early
universe from stellar-mass black hole remnants, via super-Eddington
accretion, or run-away mergers of stellar-mass objects. I will then
discuss the role of circumbinary gas in mergers of black holes: for
facilitating (or not) the early inspiral, producing unique
electromagnetic signatures, and impacting low-frequency gravitational
