I'm having the shittiest of days, so what better time than this to bring up Lady Caroline Lamb. You'll have to excuse my Bluestocking approach to this subject tonight but it's hitting a little too close to home.
Lady Caroline Lamb was the daughter of Henrietta Duncannon, Georgiana's sister. Therefore she was destined for fabulosity. Her adult life did begin as such, she married for love, was witty, beautiful, and happy. Everything changed when she met Lord Byron. He pursued her and, at first, and she resisted but was eventually overcome by his charms. She fell head over heels in love with him. When Byron ended the affair suddenly in a cold letter Caroline did not take it well. She became obsessed with him, and stalked him for about four years. It's rumored the affair even landed her in a straitjacket at one point. Byron continued to be cold and uncaring to her and even commented that he was "haunted by a skeleton;" Caroline had lost much weight in her grief.
Her husband eventually divorced her after years of being embarrassed in the press by her affair. Caroline went on to write Glenarvon, a gothic novel meant to hurt her former lover. It is said that Byron's funeral cortège ironically crossed paths with her on its way to his burial and the experience is what finally drove her to a nervous breakdown and insanity. She spent her remaining years in seclusion in Brocket Hall.
