The Lord Byron He who love not his country,can love nothing. Byron
Byron's names changed throughout his life. He was the son of Captain John "Mad Jack" Byron and his second wife, the former Catherine Gordon, a descendant of Cardinal Beaton and heiress of the estate in Scotland. He was also sometimes referred to as "Lord Noel Byron", as if "Noel" were part of his title.
His mother,Catherine Gordon,was a Scottish lady of honorable birth. His father, an army officer, died when the future poet was only 3 years old. George was very lonely from early childhood. His mother was a woman of quick feelings and strong passions.
Byron spent the first 19 years of his life in Scotland In 1798 Georges granduncle died and the boy inherited the title of baron and the family estate of the Byron's, New stead Abbey, in Nottinghamshire
From birth, Byron suffered from a deformity of his right foot. To prove that he is like all normal people,on the way to Constantinople (1809) George crossed the Dardanelles, and that he later boasted.

In 1810 in Athens Byron wrote Maid of Athens, ere we part for a 12-year- old girl, Teresa Makri [1798–1875], and reportedly offered £500 for her. The offer was not accepted.
The masterpiece, often called the epic of its time, has roots deep in literary tradition and, although regarded by early Victorians as somewhat shocking, equally involves itself with its own contemporary world at all levels social, political, literary and ideological. The first five cantos of Don Juan were written between 1818 and 1820, during which period he made the acquaintance of the young Countess Guiccioli, who found her first love in Byron, who in turn asked her to elope with him.
Clara Allegra Byron (1817–1822) Elizabeth Medora Leigh (1814–1849) Ada Lovelace (1815–1852) It is thought that Lord Byron had a son by maid he employed at New stead named Lucy.
Byron first took his seat in the House of Lords 13 Mar 1809, but left London on 11 Jun 1809 for the Continent. A strong advocate of social reform, he received particular praise as one of the few Parliamentary defenders of the Luddites: specifically, he was against a death penalty for Luddite "frame breakers" in Nottinghamshire, who destroyed textile machines that were putting them out of work.
Ultimately, Byron resolved to escape the censure of British society (due to allegations of sodomy and incest) by living abroad, thereby freeing himself of the need to conceal his sexual interests (MacCarthy pp. 86, 314).Byron left England in 1816 and did not return for the last eight years of his life, even to bury his daughter.
In 1816, Byron visited Saint Lazarus Island in Venice, where he acquainted himself with Armenian culture with the help of the abbots belonging to the Mechitarist Order. With the help of Father H. Avgerian, he learned the Armenian language, and attended many seminars about language and history.
For the first time since his arrival in Italy, Byron found himself tempted to give dinner parties; his guests included the Shelleys, Edward Ellerker Williams, Thomas Medwin, John Taaffe, and Edward John Trelawney. When the famous Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen heard about Byron's heroics in Greece, he voluntarily resculpted his earlier bust of Byron in Greek marble.
Byron developed a violent fever, and died on 19 April He was 36 years old. His death was mourned by progressive people all over Europe
Alfred, Lord Tennyson would later recall the shocked reaction in Britain when word was received of Byron's death. The Greeks mourned Lord Byron deeply, and he became a hero.The national poet of Greece, Dionysios Solomos, wrote a poem about the unexpected loss, named To the Death of Lord Byron. ("Vyron"), the Greek form of "Byron", continues in popularity as a masculine name in Greece, and a suburb of Athens is called Vyronas in his honour.
The Byronic hero presents an idealized, but flawed character whose attributes: great talent; great passion; a distaste for society and social institutions; a lack of respect for rank and privilege being thwarted in love by social constraint or death; rebellion, exile.
"No one knows what it's like To feel these feelings Like I do And I blame you" The Who, "Behind Blue Eyes"
Byron is considered to be the first modern-style celebrity. His image as the personification of the Byronic hero fascinated the public, and his wife Annabella coined the term "Byromania" to refer to the commotion surrounding him.
All who would win joy, must share it; happiness was born a twin.
