Claire accompanied Mary and Percy Bysshe Shelley on their elopement in 1814 and their travels around Europe, including to the Villa Diodati on Lake Geneva where Mary conceived the novel Frankenstein. Through them, she met George Gordon, Lord Byron, with whom she had a daughter, Allegra (who died at age 5).
