Anne in 1637, by Anthony van Dyck


Anne was born on 17 March 1637 at St. James's Palace, the seventh child and third daughter of King Charles I of England and his queen, Henrietta Maria of France.[1] Her siblings were, in order of birth: Charles James, Duke of Rothesay and Cornwall (13 May 1629); the future Charles II of England; Mary, Princess Royal and future Princess of Orange; the future James II of England and Elizabeth of England. Anne was baptised an Anglican at St. James's Palace on 30 March, by William Laud, the Anglican Bishop of London.[2][3] Anne only lived to see the birth of two siblings: the stillborn Catherine (29 June 1639) and Henry Stuart, Duke of Gloucester. She died before the birth of her sister, Princess Henrietta of England, who married Philippe I, Duke of Orléans and had four children by him.

Anne was a sickly child, which is obvious in this engraving of her. She was frail and slightly deformed.


Anne became ill with tuberculosis,[4] a disease which would later kill her more famous sister Elizabeth. Aged just three, Anne died at Richmond Palace. She was buried in Westminster Abbey, next to her brother Charles James.
