Anne Digby Spencer

Lady Anne was born in Bristol, Gloucestershire, England and was the daughter of George Digby, 2nd Earl of Bristol. Her mother was the former Lady Anne Russell. She married Robert, 2nd Earl of Sunderland on June 10, 1665. The couple had seven children-three dying in early childhood.

Anne became a close friend of Sarah Churchill, later Duchess of Marlborough, and was not liked by Queen Anne. The Queen jealous of their friendship, described Lady Anne Digby as 'the greatest jade that ever lived.' Jade, here, means liar! Anne is alleged to have had an affair with Henry Sidney, Earl of Romney, her husband's uncle.
