Shelley, Mary (1797–1851), 

daughter of feminist Mary Wollstonecraft and radical philosopher William Godwin, wife of poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, and author of Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus (1817). She was part of a radical Anglo-French network in Paris that included Mrs Trollope, with whom she stayed in 1827 and was invited to join the Nashoba commune venture Fanny Wright had designed. She declined.
