About Author

A. L. G. Bosboom-Toussaint

Anna Louisa Geertruida Bosboom-Toussaint was a Dutch novelist. Geertruida Toussaint was born in Alkmaar, Netherlands, on September 16, 1812. Her father, a pharmacist of Huguenot origin, provided her with a fair education, and early in her career she developed an interest in historical study, which was fueled by a forced indoor life due to poor health. Her first romance, Almagro, was published in 1837, followed by De graaf van Devonshire ("The Earl of Devonshire") in 1838, De Engelschen te Rome ("The English at Rome") in 1840, and Het Huis Lauernesse ("The House of Lauernesse") in 1841, a Reformation episode that was translated into many European languages. Toussaint conducted additional research from 1840 to 1850, resulting in a trilogy of novels published between 1851 and 1854 about the first Earl of Leicester's adventures in the Low Countries: Leycester in Nederland, Vrouwen van het Leycestersche Tydperk (Women of Leicester's Epoch, three volumes), and Gideon Florensz. She married Dutch painter Johannes Bosboom (1817-1891) in 1851, and became known as Mrs Bosboom-Toussaint after that.
