Thorvaldsen's marble statue of Lord Byron was originally offered to Westmister Abbey for the Poets' Corner but was refused by the Dean because of Byron's questionable morals.

When Byron was up at Trinity, undegraduates were not allowed to keep dogs. He decided to have a tame bear instead sot that it could 'sit for its Fellowship'.
