Anne Topham - Governess to Princess Victoria Luise

Anne Topham, who was born in Derbyshire in 1864, served as governess to Princess Victoria Luise of Prussia from 1902 until 1909, leaving the German court after the Princess was confirmed that October.  She returned to England to live, although she was invited to attend the Princess's wedding in May 1913 to Prince Ernst August of Hanover.

 She wrote three books about her time in Germany:  Memories of the Kaiser's Court, Memories of the Fatherland, and Chronicles of the Prussian Court.

Anne Topham died in 1927.
