Anne, Princess Royal of England, Duchess of Brunswick-Luneberg, and Princess of Orange-Nassau was the second child and eldest daughter of King George II of England and his consort, Queen Caroline. She was born in the Herrenhausen Palace, Hanover,Prussia (now Germany).

Anne was the wife of Prince Willem IV of Orange-Nassau, the first hereditary stadtholder of the Netherlands. They married 25 March 1734 in St James' Palace, London, Middlesex, England.

Willem and Anne were parents to Wilhelmina Karolina, Anne Maria, Willem Batavus, two stillborn daughters and one stillborn son.

When her husband died in 1751, Anne was appointed regent for her 3 year-old son William. She was at first a good leader in the government with her quick decision-making skills, but she later became tyrannical and unpredictable.
