Biography (note)
  • Ralph Milbanke, second Earl of Lovelace. The third and youngest child of William King, first Earl of Lovelace, and Ada Byron King, the computer pioneer, he was baptized Ralph Gordon Noel King. In 1861, he adopted the surname Milbanke, as directed by the will of his grandmother, Lady Byron. After the death of his older brother in 1862, he inherited the Wentworth barony; he was known as Lord Wentworth until his father's death in 1893, when he became the second Earl of Lovelace. In 1905 he published his book Astarte, which paints a very negative portrait of his grandfather, Lord Byron, the poet.
