Personal Information

  • Name Anne von Austria 
    Born 1601 
    Gender Female 
    Died 1666 
    • She was born in Valladolid, Spain and baptised Ana Maria Mauricia, as the daughter of Habsburg parents, Philip III, king of Spain, and Margaret of Austria. She bore the titles of infanta of Spain and of Portugal, archduchess of Austria, princess of Burgundy and of the Low Countries. She was affianced at the age of ten, and on November 24, 1615, at Burgos she was married by proxy to King Louis XIII of France (1601-1643), part of the Bourbon Dynasty, a purely political match[1] that was pressed by the Queen Mother, Marie de' Medici. They would have two sons, Louis (the dauphin) born in 1638 and Philip I, Duke of Orléans born in 1640. The marriage was not a happy one, filled with mistrust. It started badly with the fourteen-year-old couple forced to consummate the marriage, to forestall any possibility of future anullment, a humiliation that resulted in Louis' refusal to touch his wife for the following several years.
