Anne Neville Biography
(Former Queen Consort of England (1483 - 1485))
Birthday: June 11, 1456 (Gemini)
Born In: Warwickshire, England
Anne Neville was an English Queen. She was the younger daughter of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick. She was born in the very wealthy and politically influential House of Neville family in late medieval England during a period of intense political unrest and conspiracies for control over the throne. She saw her father act as the prime king-maker behind Edward IV, son of Richard, Duke of York. The Earl initially supported the York faction in their fight for the throne against the House of Lancaster in the hope of political and financial gain. Later, he used Anne to play a crucial role in support of Henry VI by marrying her to Prince Edward, son of King Henry VI and exiled queen Margaret of Anjou. When the Earl of Warwick defeated the House of York and re-established Henry VI on the throne of England (though for a brief period) in 1470, Annie became the Princess of Wales. When Edward IV regained the throne, Anne lived as a commoner for a short period before getting re-married to Richard of Gloucester and eventually getting crowned as Queen of England in 1483.
