Ada Lovelace is of great interest to many Steampunk enthusiasts because of her involvement with the first computing machine and her work that was so far ahead of its time. From ability to the things she conceptualized, few people came close to her foresight and talent. She also had a family tree filled with famous artists and thinkers, was a countess, and lived elaborately. You can’t ask for much more from a Steampunk Princess!
One of the goals that we have for the Steampunk Threads blog is to explore the lives of the various Steampunk “celebrities” from history and to tell their stories. We are beginning with Mary Shelley as a natural starting point and welcome you to comment on this post or be in touch to let us know other historical figures you would like us to feature.
