Lord George Gordon Byron
Birth: Jan. 22, 1788
Harrow
Greater London, England
Death: Apr. 19, 1824
Missolonghi
Regional unit of Aetolia-Acarnania
West Greece, Greece

Author, Poet. He was the 6th Baron Byron. He was among the most famous of the English 'Romantic' poets. His major works include Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Don Juan and Hours of Idleness. He died of fever and exposure while engaged in the Greek struggle for independence. His remains (except for his heart, which is buried at Missolonghi, Greece) were sent back to England and buried beneath the chancel of St. Mary Magdalene at Huchnall-Torkard in Nottinghamshire. Authorities would not sanction burial in Westminster Abbey, and neither bust nor statue of Lord Byron was erected in the Poets' Corner until 145 years later. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
