June 26: Branwell Bronte Born, 1817

Branwell was the brother of Anne, Emily, and Charlotte Bronte. He was talented in his own right, but he wasted his talent.

Pictured: Branwell's picture of his sisters, left to right: Anne, Emily, and Charlotte. Branwell was in the picture, between Emily and Charlotte, but he painted himself out. You can still faintly see his "ghost."
