Anne Neville

Lady Anne Neville (11 June 1456 – 16 March 1485) was an English noblewoman, the daughter of Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick (the "Kingmaker"), who became Princess of Wales as the wife of Edward of Westminster and Queen of England as the consort of King Richard III.

As a member of the powerful House of Neville, she was caught up in the Wars of the Roses fought between the House of York and House of Lancaster for the English crown. Her father Warwick betrothed her as a girl to Richard, youngest brother of King Edward IV of York, then later arranged her marriage to Edward, the son of King Henry VI of Lancaster. After the deaths of Edward and Warwick, she married Richard. She became Queen when Richard seized the crown in June 1483, but died in March 1485, five months before Richard was killed at Bosworth Field.

Her only child was with Richard: Edward (1473-1484).
