George Gordon, Lord Byron, a principal figure in the Romantic movement, is considered one of the greatest British poets, and remains widely read today. His brilliant poems brought him celebrity and adulation at an early age, but his love of excess led to several disastrous love affairs (with men as well as women), and to enormous gambling debts. Hounded by creditors, cuckolds, and spurned lovers, he fled to Europe in 1816, never to return to England. After living in Italy for seven years, Byron became involved with the Greek Revolution, a war of independence waged by Greek insurgents against the Ottoman Empire. He died in Greece in 1824 from fever, early in the war. Lord Byron and Percy Shelley met for the first time in Switzerland in the summer of 1816. Byron and his physician, Dr. John Polidori, rented the Villa Diodati near Lake Geneva, and Shelley, his lover Mary Godwin, and her step-sister Claire Clairmont became frequent visitors. The unseasonable weather often kept them indoors, where they would amuse themselves by inventing ghost stories. Two of their tales, 'The Vampyre', and 'Frankenstein', became seminal works of Gothic horror.
