In 1847, she died of TB. In "The Raven," the narrator's late wife was named Lenore. The poem makes no mention of how she died. In 1845, the poem was published. Therefore, she must have died before then.
Lenore is an English and German name that means "beautiful woman."
She may have been inspired by the character of Lenora in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1798 poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". Like the fictional Lenore, the real-life Lenora was a young married woman who died of tuberculosis. She had been sick for several months when her husband wrote about her in his poem.
Another possibility is that the name was chosen by Coleridge as a tribute to someone he loved. There are records of other people being called Lenore or Loren during this time period. For example, one record shows that a Lawrence Smith was baptized on August 5, 1770. He would have been about two years old at the time of this baptism. Another record shows that a Lorena Smith was born on April 5, 1772. She would have been about five years old at the time of this birth.
Edgar Allan Poe was never married to a Lenore. In 1834, he married his 13-year-old cousin Virginia Clemm in a covert marriage (they later married publicly). He married her when she was 13 since she was his cousin. Since he loved poetry and writing, many think that he married too young.
Did you know that Edgar Allan Poe is considered the father of crime fiction? He is known for his stories that feature detectives, murder mysteries, and criminals. Some of his most famous works include "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Pit and the Pendulum", and "The Cask of Amontillado".
He lived in Baltimore until he was 10 years old then moved with his family to Richmond where he finished school. At age 19, he moved back to Baltimore where he worked as an editor and writer for newspapers. His first collection of poems was published in 1829 when he was 26 years old. In 1831, he went to London where he worked as a journalist for several months before returning home. In 1835, he moved back to Baltimore where he started his own newspaper. In 1845, he moved again this time to Philadelphia where he spent the last seven years of his life. There, he worked as a literary critic for various publications including The Saturday Courier. He returned to Baltimore after dying in Virginia at the age of 40.

Rosetta LeNoir was born on January 11, 1922, in New York City, New York, to French-Canadian parents. She became interested in acting at an early age and appeared with her family in several radio shows during the 1940s. In 1949, she played Laura Hunt in the first television production of Philip Barry's play The American Clock. This is probably where she gained attention for her talent since afterward she often played strong women roles in many other television productions. In 1954, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the television series The Walter Kerr Show. That same year, she married actor Charles Bickford; they divorced in 1959. In 1960, she starred as Mrs. Transome in the original Broadway production of John Whiting's play The Madwoman of Chaillot, which earned her another Tony Award nomination.
In 1961, Rosetta LeNoir married writer Harry Longbaugh, who died in 1975. Two years later, she moved into an apartment building in New Jersey where she lived with her son from her previous marriage.
