Johanna Kinkel (also Mathieux or Mockel) made her mark in the worlds of both music and literature and her life makes a fascinating story.  Born in Bonn, her childhood music studies were with Beethoven’s teacher. As an adult, she was a friend of Fanny Mendelssohn and Karl Marx. She got caught up in the revolutionary events of 1849 and emigrated to London after helping her husband escape from Spandau prison. Her short life ended tragically when she fell from her bedroom window near Paddington station. Read more about Johanna Kinkel
