English Monarch. Queen consort of King Richard II. The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and Elizabeth of Pomerania. She married Richard on January 22, 1383. Most biographers agree that theirs was a very successful marriage, and the couple was very much in love. Despite having 12 years together, they were childless. Anne was struck with plague and died at the age of 28. Reportedly, her husband was wild with grief, and even allegedly struck a funeral guest for arriving late and thus dishonoring the queen's memory.
