Character description

Mary of Burgundy (1457–1482), nicknamed "Mary the Rich," was the vastly wealthy heiress to the lands of her father Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and thus the greatest matrimonial prize in Europe. From among her many suitors, she chose the Hapsburg duke Maximilian of Austria (who later became Holy Roman Emperor), merging their territories. She died in a fall from her horse at age 25.
