Anna Harriet Leonowens, of "King and I" fame.  Forget 9/10ths of what you thought you knew about this lady.  She was born in India of an Englishman and a part-Eurasian lady--something that Anna didn't wish people to know.  Her veracity in her memoirs of her years in Siam has been challenged. She led a very peripatetic life. Boris Karloff was her sister's grandson.  Well worth reading more--even her husband's name wasn't originally Leonowens,
