Biography | show moreshow less
George Gordon Byron, better known as Lord Byron, was one of the most influential poets of the Romantic period. Born on January 22, 1788, in London, England, Byron is best remembered for his charismatic personality and his rich, lyrical verse. His first major work, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage", published in 1812, brought him immediate fame. His character of the brooding, solitary romantic hero is often seen as a representation of Byron himself. Other renowned works include "Don Juan", a satirical epic; and "She Walks in Beauty", a lyrical poem inspired by the beauty of a woman.

Byron was not just a poet; he was also an ardent supporter of social and political change. He actively supported the fight for Greek independence from the Ottoman Empire, becoming a national hero in Greece. His personal life was controversial and marked by numerous love affairs, a scandalous separation from his wife, and rumors of a scandalous affair with his half-sister. Lord Byron died at the young age of 36 on April 19, 1824, in Missolonghi, Greece, from a fever while aiding the Greek independence movement.
