A Byronic Hero possesses some specific characteristics. Some of these characteristics include a rebellious nature with distaste for "social institutions" and no respect for authority, feeling as though he is "larger than life", living in exile (sometimes self-imposed, sometimes by force), being attractive to members of either sex, and finally, being a passionate person.

Don Juan fits all of the requirements.
