About the Author
George Gordon Byron (1788-1824), also known as Lord Byron, was a peer of the British Empire and member of the House of Lords. However, he is best known for his contributions to the Romantic movement, particularly his poems Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and Don Juan. Lord Byron is also known for his many love affairs, although he was briefly married and produced his only legitimate child, Ada Lovelace (who is recognized as a pioneer in computer programming). In his thirties, he joined the Greek War of Independence and died of a fever at age 36. His body was returned to England was refused burial at Westminster Abbey, though a memorial was eventually placed there in the 1960's.
