When Ada was 8 her father died in Greece.  When Lovelace was little her mother made her lie still for long periods of time, believing that she would develop more self-control.

She had been taught by William Fred, a social reformer; Mary Somerville, a Scottish mathematician and astronomer; and William King, the family’s doctor.  When Lovelace was 12 she was fantasized with flight.  She had invented a mechanical flying bird.  At one point Lovelace had rebelled against her mother and said she was going to be like her father and be a poet.  When Lovelace was 14 she was paralyzed with the measles. Around the age of 17 Ada met Charles Babbage, a inventer and a mathematician. Babbage was a mentor to Lovelace. Despite that Babbage was much older than Lovelace, they had became friends.  Lovelace started studying at the University of London, advanced mathematics, with professor Augustus De Morgan.
