Biography

On 10 December 1816, the body of Shelley's estranged wife Harriet was found in an advanced state of pregnancy, drowned in the Serpentine in Hyde Park, London.

Her memory was so slandered after her death, that no less a personage than Mark Twain took it upon himself to write an essay defending her: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3171/3171-h/3171-h.htm
