Doubly linked list is a sequence of elements in which every element has links to its previous element and next element in the sequence.

Here, ‘link1’ field is used to store the address of the previous node in the sequence, ‘link2’ field is used to store the address of the next node in the sequence and ‘data’ field is used to store the actual value of that node.
