Anna Leonowens worked at the Siamese palace from 1862 to 1867. She taught English to the king's children. The king had absolute power. Slavery was commonplace.
But Anna brought her own ideals with her, and the fact that King Mongkut had hired her was a sign that the country was moving in a new direction. Fascinating story of cultural discovery and values conflict!
