Ada Lovelace, born Augusta Ada Byron and later known as Countess of Lovelace or Lady King after her husband, (AUDIO: The Enchantress of Numbers) was the daughter of Lord George Gordon Byron and his wife Annabella.
Weeks before leaving for Switzerland in 1816, Byron abandoned her and her mother. (AUDIO: The Witch from the Well) The Star Chamber recruited her at a young age through her mother, and they had her raised separate from her father's influence so that her mind would be applied to science rather than poetry.
As a mathematics prodigy, she struggled to understand the Musical Offering but found immediate value in Charles Babbage's analytical engine, with which she developed a plan for invading the Eleven-Day Empire, which was put into practice in the Clockwork Ouroboros affair in 1834.
