    (November 13, 1785-January 26, 1828)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Caroline Ponsby
    Married future British Prime Minister William Lamb, Lord Melbourne
    Wrote the novels ‘Glenarvon’ (1816), ‘Graham Hamilton’ (1822) and ‘Ada Reiss’ (1823)
    She once jumped naked out of a soup tureen at a party for her husband.
    She sent her lover, Lord Byron, a letter containing her pubic hairs.
    After Byron left her, she pursued him obsessively until he left England.
    She was ostracized by English society after writing a barely disguised account of her affair with Byron in ‘Glenarvon.’
    She suffered a nervous breakdown after accidentally encountering Byron’s funeral procession.
    She abused laudanum.
    She famously described Byron as ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know.’
    She raised her mentally retarded, epileptic son Augustus at home rather than follow the standard practice of placing him with caretakers.
    Despite her affair, she and William remained in love until her death.
