George Gordon Byron, or commonly known as Lord Byron was one of the greatest British poets of all time. He was a key figure during the Romantic movement.

Byron had it rough as a child. He was abandoned by his father, and he was raised by a schizophrenic mother. These events were key to his flamboyant attitude and undisciplined behavior that he showed later in life.

He received the title Lord in 1798, when he was just 10 years old. By the age of 20, he was already a well-known figure in the world of literature. He published his satirical poem “English Bards and Scotch Reviewers” in 1808, one of his first famous works.

He was known as a promiscuous writer who had a bit of a problem with gambling. But he was mostly known for his love of animals.

During his life, he lived in several countries in Europe, including Italy, Greece, and Switzerland. He always kept animals with him in the house.

He died at the young age of 36, leaving behind several masterpieces. Lord Byron was buried at the cemetery in the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Hucknall, England.
