The English Governess at the Siamese Court: The True Story Behind The King and I by Anna Harriette LeonowensAnna 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.
