The relationship between Calvin and Luther?

Greetings all, i'm a foreign born Buddhist so i'm rather like a strange man in a strange land when i go about asking questions like these but:

What kind of relationship did Calvin and Luther have? I'm not asking how their theology or work effected each other per say, but wanted to know if both of these important historic protestant figures had any sort of personal connection?

    Calvin came thirty years later and was a lawyer by trade. He detailed and organized a great deal that Luther simply broke into.

    One was a revolutionary, the other reconstructed Christianity in a meticulous fashion.

    John Knox, the founder of Presbyterianism was influenced by Calvin when he fled Scotland.for Switzerland.

    I believe they were several years apart. Never met I am sure.
