Who was Madame Tussaud?

Born in France in 1761 to her recently-widowed pregnant mother, Marie Tussaud (née Grosholtz) grew up in Switzerland where her mother was the housekeeper for a physician named Dr. Philippe Curtius. Dr. Curtius was not just a physician, he was also a wax modeler, and he took on the young Marie as his student in wax modeling-- an activity for which the young Marie demonstrated exceptional talent for! Marie started to make a name for herself and became a favorite of the French Royal Family, where she taught art to Louis XVI’s sister in 1780. By the time of the French Revolution, Marie’s connections with the Royal family got her imprisoned by revolutionaries, but luckily she was released when an influential friend vouched for her. Shortly afterward her mentor Dr. Curtius passed away, leaving all of his Wax models to Marie. A year later (1795) Marie got married and took on her husband’s name; thus taking the mantle of Madame Tussaud. She moved to London in 1802 with her wax models, and by 1835 she opened her first Wax Museum on Baker Street and the rest is history!
