Lord Byron has become one of the most famous figures in British history, notorious for his flamboyant and controversial life. He allegedly had an affair with his half sister, fathering a daughter by her. His only legitimate child, Ada Lovelace, was the first computer programmer. Byron ran into a lot of debt in his life, escaping to the East and Europe whenever this happened. He also has a number of high-profiled affairs, including the Lady Caroline Lamb, who was married to Queen Victoria's future first Prime Minister, William Lamb. His wife's separation from him in 1816 was a scandal, and was widely gossiped and written about. Byron was also present at the birth of Mary Shelley's famous horror story 'Frankenstein', in Switzerland. Edited by Leslie A. Marchand, an American scholar, mostly known for her study into Byron.
