My final RL book group read for the month. Historical fiction, about a RL woman who went to Siam (modern Thailand) in Victorian times to teach the King's Children. This book was the basis for the play and the movies. It was also oddly a fictional book that the author based (re-wrote) on two non-fiction books written by the actual Anna herself/5(6).   Anna and the King of Siam: The Book That Inspired the Musical and Film 'The King and I' (Unabridged) audiobook, by Margaret Landon Audie Award Nominee, Inspirational Nonfiction, Anna Leonowens, a proper Englishwoman, was an unlikely candidate to change the course of Siamese (Thai) history. A young widow and mother, her services were engaged in the 's by King Mongkut of Siam 3/5.

The English Governess at the Siamese Court, written in , vividly recounts the experiences of one Anna Harriette Leonowens as governess for the sixty-plus children of King Mongkut of Siam, and translator and scribe for the King himself. Bright, young, and energetic, Leonowens was well-suited to her role and her writings convey a heartfelt interest in the lives, legends, and languages of Siam's rich and .   In , young English widow Anna Owens (Irene Dunne) accepts the job of teaching the royal children of Siam. On her arrival in Bangkok, culture clash is immediate. King Mongkut (Sir Rex Harrison) respects Anna for standing up to him, though this appalls his courtiers. In due course, she becomes the King's confidant and diplomatic advisor.7/10(K).
