Although it was claimed that Sir Isaac Newton (1642 –1727) was once engaged, the famous English mathematician, physicist, astronomer and theologian never married. After his funeral the French writer and philosopher Voltaire, who was in London at the time said that Newton “was never sensible to any passion, was not subject to the common frailties of mankind, nor had any commerce with womem”. The common belief is that he died as a virgin.
