Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Lord Byron was the model for the title character of Glenarvon (1816), by Byron's erstwhile lover Lady Caroline Lamb.

The poetry, romantic adventures and character of Lord Byron, characterised by his spurned lover Lady Caroline Lamb as 'mad, bad and dangerous to know' was another inspiration for the Gothic, providing the archetype of the Byronic hero. Byron features, under the codename of 'Lord Ruthven', in Lady Caroline's own Gothic novel: Glenarvon (1816).
