Lord Melbourne first entered the popular consciousness as the unfortunate husband publicly cuckolded by the erratic Lady Caroline Lamb in her affair with Lord Byron. He weathered this embarrassment to pursue a poltical career which culminated in his distinguished service to Queen Victoria as her favourite early Prime Minister and guide through the poltical landscape of the start of her reign.
