Lord Byron was an English poet and one of the most prominent figures in the Romantic Movement. His best-known poems include Don Juan, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage andShe Walks in Beauty. These works, as well as several others contributed in making him one of the greatest British poets ever. He was also known for his amorous lifestyle.
He married Anne Isabella Milbanke in 1815. He and Anne had a daughter named Augusta Ada, but their marriage was an unhappy one. Anne eventually left him. He went on to father another child, Clara Allegra Byron out of wedlock.
He was rumored to have had an incestuous relationship with his half-sister Augusta Leigh and even fathered a child, Elizabeth with her. These rumors were never proved.
