Described by one of his lovers as "mad, bad, and dangerous to know," Lord Byron is known as one of England’s greatest poets, whose personality caused as much of a sensation as his poetry.
A series of shocking affairs and huge debts caused Byron to leave England in 1816, and he spent the rest of his life in a self-imposed exile in Europe. While fighting for the Greeks in their war of independence against the Turks, Byron contracted a fever and died at the young age of 36, cementing his legend as a tragic, romantic hero.
