Ada Lovelace was the daughter of Lord Byron

Ada Lovelace was the child of influential British poet Lord Byron. She is better known for writing the world’s first computer program[1] for a theoretical analytical engine (computer). Some references state Byron left his wife a month after Lovelace was born[3] and others say Ada’s mother, Anne Isabella Noel Byron, left Byron and retained custody of Lovelace[2].

Byron is considered one of poetry’s greatest writers, but he is also known for his rakish behavior and his famous satiric poem Don Juan. Lovelace was Byron’s only child of a marriage, but he also fathered at least one other child.[4]
