Details

Thrown out of home by her husband, Lord Byron, Annabella Milbanke defied the gossip of Regency England to forge a new role as a social reformer. This biography records how, after a rebellious adolescence and volatile marriage, she went on to found the country’s first infants’ and co-operative schools, and campaign against slavery. She was also a talented mathematician, a skill she passed on to her daughter Ada Lovelace, now hailed as a pioneer of computing.
