Anna Leonowens, an English governess who for six years was employed by the Siamese King Mongkut (Rama IV) for the instruction of his children including his son and successor Prince Chulalongkorn. Later she resided in New York where she contributed articles to the Atlantic Monthly, a literary and cultural commentary magazine founded in Boston in 1857.
