The English Governess at the Siamese Court: The True Story Behind 'The King and I'

by Anna Harriette Leonowens..

Anna Leonownes' memoir of her six year as a governess in the Royal Palace of Bangkok was the inspiration for the beloved Broadway musical The king and I, as well as two award-winning films. First published in 1870.

Leonowens' memoir is the true story of a proper English governess who is hired by the King of Siam to tutor his many children.

A delightful portrait of an unlikely friendship between two headstrong personalities, it is also a revealing peak at two very different cultures.
