Anne Neville
Birth: Jun. 10, 1456
Warwick
Warwick District
Warwickshire, England
Death: Mar. 16, 1485
Westminster
City of Westminster
Greater London, England

English Monarch. Queen consort of King Richard III. The daughter of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, she was used as a political pawn for much of her short life. Her father formally betrothed her to Edward, Prince of Wales, the son of deposed King Henry VI, in 1470. It is unknown whether there was a marriage, or if the relationship was ever consummated. Upon the death of Edward in 1471, Anne found herself the subject of much dispute within the king's family. King Edward IV's brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, wished to marry her(she had been his childhood sweetheart), while her brother-in-law George, Duke of Clarence, opposed the marriage, wishing to be sole heir to the considerable Neville fortune. Richard and Anne were married July 12, 1472, and Richard became king in 1483. Their only child, Edward, died suddenly in 1484. Anne had never been of robust health, and probably suffered from tuberculosis. Despite rumours of having been poisoned by her husband, she probably died as a result of the disease.  (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
