Character description

Anne or Anna of Cleves, Queen Consort of England (1515–1557), was the fourth wife of King Henry VIII. Henry sought the match in order to make an alliance with her brother, the ruler of a small but strategic duchy in present-day Germany. But he disliked Anne and the marriage was dissolved 6 months later. She lived comfortably in England for the rest of her life.
