Ada, Countess of Lovelace, stands at the foot of a staircase and steps delicately forward, demurely turning her face away from the viewer. Lord Byron married Annabella Milbanke, daughter of Sir Ralph Milbanke, in 1815. The couple's only child, Ada, was born just before they separated amid bitter quarrels the following year. Ada was raised by her mother and educated in mathematics and sciences to prevent her following in her father's footsteps as a poet.
