Justyna Chopin

Justyna Chopin (1782–1861) née Krzyżanowska was the mother of Fryderyk Chopin. Krzyżanowska left home in the early 19th century – probably when her father died – and moved in with Kacper and Ludwika Skarbek at Żelazowa Wola, almost certainly to assist them in running the home. This is where she met Mikołaj Chopin, who tutored the Skarbek’s children. The couple was married in Brochów in 1806.

Krzyżanowska was very close to her son, who not only corresponded frequently with his parents after he had left the country, but often spoke of his mother with great affection and respect. Surviving references by those who knew her paint her as a devoted wife and mother, and as a kind, gentle, patient and pious woman concerned to preserve the Polish identity of her home and family.
