Anna Maria Maria Pertl Mozart
Birth: Dec. 25, 1720

Death: Jul. 3, 1778
City of Paris

Mozart's mother was born Anna Maria Pertl, third daughter of the district magistrate of St Gilgen, 30 km from Salzburg, and his wife Euphrosina (known as Rosina). Her father (an enthusiastic amateur singer in his youth) died when she was a little over three years old, and her mother moved to Salzburg with her two surviving daughters and eked out a living from a tiny pension. The elder daughter Rosina died aged 9. Anna Maria, good-tempered, attractive, and with many friends, met Leopold Mozart (born 1719) when he came to Salzburg from his native Augsburg to attend the Benedictine University in 1737. They were married in November 1747, after he had secured a salaried post as violinist with the Court Orchestra. Of their seven children, only two survived - Maria Anna (Nannerl), born 1751, and Wolfgang (born 1756). Both were musical prodigies, and between 1762 and 1768 the four of them travelled extensively throughout Europe and to London, where they met the highest in the land and Nannerl and Wolfgang performed before royalty and nobility. In 1770 Maria Anna and Nannerl stayed in Salzburg while Leopold took Wolfgang on three long trips to Italy which were musically successful but did not gain him the appointment which would have secured his future and that of the family. In 1777 Leopold was unable to obtain any further leave from his position in Salzburg, and Anna Maria left Salzburg in his place on another such journey, whose ultimate destination was Paris. In Mannheim it became necessary to change the original plan whereby her son would have continued on without her. Instead of her returning to Salzburg, the two journeyed to Paris together. Six months after their arrival, she contracted typhus (?), and died in Paris. She was buried in one of the graveyards attached to the church of St-Eustache. In the early 19th century all the ancient cemeteries in Paris were abolished, and the remains transferred to the Catacombs. A commemorative plaque was placed in St-Eustache in the chapel dedicated to St Cecilia. It is located near the great French composer Rameau.
