Katharina Elisabeth Goethe, known as "Frau Rat" (19 February 1731 - 13 September 1808) was the mother of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe....She was born and died at Frankfurt am Main, and was a daughter of Johann Wolfgang Textor, a prominent citizen of Frankfurt. She married Johann Kaspar Goethe, on 20 August 1748, and had four children by him.
