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