    Byron

    Heritage of Storms: Lord Byron, His Romantic Inheritance and His Artistic Legacy.

    Speaker: 

    Elizabeth Merry

    Byron's family history is a story as turbulent and passionate as that of any of his romantic and troubled heroes. The lame son of 'Mad Jack' Byron, gambler, renegade Guardsman and debauched seducer of high society beauties, and rich heiress Catherine Gordon of Gight, who herself came from a long line of lawless and violent Scottish aristocracy, Lord Byron's was indeed a heritage of storms.
