Where in the world is Ada Lovelace?

Ada Lovelace, sometimes referred to as “The Enchantress of Numbers,” was Born December 10th, 1815. She’s often regarded as one of the worlds first computer programmers, programing some of the first programs for the Analytical Engine. She befriended Charles Babbage sometimes around 1833, who created the initial plans for the Analytical Engine. She called it what we would call it, a general purpose computer, and some of her notes on this project would even lead to the eventual creation of computer-generated music software, and graphical design software.

She died 1852, at the age of 37, which was the same age her father, Lord Byron died at.
