About Ana Maria Walburga Mozart (Pertl)

Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

"...Anna Maria Walburga Mozart (née Pertl) (December 25, 1720 – July 3, 1778) was the mother of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Maria Anna Mozart..."

"...She was born in St. Gilgen, Archbishopric of Salzburg, Holy Roman Empire to Eva Rosina (1681–1755) and Wolfgang Nicolaus Pertl (1667–1724), deputy prefect of Hildenstein. Nicolaus had a university degree in jurisprudence from the Benedictine University in Salzburg, and held a number of positions of responsibility, including district superintendent in St. Andrae. He was apparently a skilled musician. He suffered a severe illness in 1714 and had to change positions to one with a fairly low salary (250 florins per year) as deputy superintendent of Hüttenstein. During the last portion of his life he fell deeply into debt, and he died 7 March 1724..."

"...Nicolaus's possessions were liquidated to help pay the debt, and his remaining family (Anna Maria's mother and her older sister Maria Rosina (born 24 August 1719) lapsed into poverty. They moved to Salzburg, not far away, and lived on a charity pension of just eight (later nine) florins per month, perhaps supplemented by low-level employment. Anna Maria's older sister died in 1728, aged nine. Anna Maria herself was not well when she was young: legal documents from the time describe her as "constantly ill" (1733) and "the constantly ill bedridden daughter" (1739)..."

"...She married Leopold Mozart in Salzburg in 1747 ..."

"...They had seven children, of whom only two survived infancy. Both children achieved fame. Their daughter Maria Anna Mozart, born 1751, was called "Nannerl" as a child. She was a talented musician who performed with her brother on tour, but whose later life was very limited in its experiences and possibilities. Their son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, born 27 January 1756, achieved distinction first as a child prodigy, later as one of the most celebrated of all composers..."

"...While in Paris she took ill and died on 3 July 1778 of an undiagnosed illness. She was buried in the cemetery of Saint-Eustache..."
