German pianist, composer, poet, and writer.
Kinkel was an author of considerable merit. She wrote on musical subjects, including regular review articles of music events for the Bonner Zeitung, a newspaper she and her husband edited. An autobiographical novel of hers, Hans Ibeles in London, was published posthumously in 1860. She had a substantial output of musical compositions and wrote music for her children. She died on 15 November 1858 in London and is buried with her daughters Marie Kinkel (January–February 1861) and Johanna Kinkel (1845-1863).
