Only legitimate child of George Gordon, Lord Byron. She was a genius for math from an early age and met Charles Babbage in 1833. She became interested in a model he had constructed of a mechanical device to compute values of quadratic functions, the Difference Engine. Ada translated an article by an Italian engineer Manabrea on Babbageas Analytical Engine and added notes of her own which showed how the Analytical Engine would work including a set of instructions for using the Engine to calculate Bernoulli numbers.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the remarkable Portrait of Augusta Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace. Painted in oil on canvas by an anonymous English School artist during the 19th century, this portrait captures the essence of a brilliant mathematician and influential figure in history. Augusta Ada Byron, known as Ada Lovelace, was not only the daughter of renowned poet George Gordon, Lord Byron but also a prodigy in mathematics from a young age. Her exceptional intellect led her to cross paths with Charles Babbage in 1833 when she became fascinated by his mechanical device called the Difference Engine. Intrigued by Babbage's invention, Ada took it upon herself to translate an article written by Italian engineer Manabrea about Babbage's Analytical Engine. Not stopping there, she added her own extensive notes that demonstrated how this groundbreaking machine would function. These notes even included instructions for calculating Bernoulli numbers using the Analytical Engine. Ada's contributions to computer science were truly ahead of her time. In 1835, she married William King and later became known as Augusta Ada King-Noel, Countess of Lovelace – making her the first Earl of Lovelace. This mesmerizing portrait serves as a powerful reminder of Ada Lovelace's brilliance and enduring legacy as both a female pioneer in mathematics and an influential figure in technological advancements.
