Biography

Life

Anne was born on 17 March 1637 at St. James's Palace, the sixth child and third daughter of King Charles I of England and his queen, Henrietta Maria of France. 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 Archbishop of Canterbury. Anne only lived to see the birth of two siblings: the short lived 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.

Aged just three, Anne died in 1640 from the lung disease tuberculosis. She was buried in Westminster Abbey, next to her brother Charles James.
