Mary Shelley - Redhead

A while back we mentioned the possibility that the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was a redhead, and we showed a portrait of him as a child with gingery hair (pictured below). We now have some evidence that his wife Mary Shelley, author of the novel Frankenstein, was also red-haired. The portrait below, under her husbands, shows her with reddish hair. Also a book titled Mary Shelley: Frankenstein's Creator - The First Science Fiction Writer by Joan Kane Nichols mentions her hair colour. She described her thusly;
In her early teens, pale and pretty with delicate features and almond-shaped eyes that changed from gray to hazel under a cloud of light reddish-brown hair.

  1. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
