> Anne of Austria (1601-1666), queen of France. She was born in Madrid, the
> daughter of Philip III, king of Spain, and Margaret of
> Austria, both descendants of the Habsburg family. In 1615 she married Louis XIII
> of France. The marriage was unhappy, and from
> 1620 until the death of Louis in 1643, the couple lived in virtual separation.
> The king's chief minister, Cardinal Richelieu, doubted
> Anne's loyalty to France because of her Spanish origin. He accused her of
> complicity in several treasonable conspiracies against Louis,
> but her guilt was never proved. After Louis died, Anne assumed the regency for
> her five-year-old son, King Louis XIV, but entrusted
> the government to the prime minister, Jules Mazarin. Together, they upheld the
> authority of the Crown during the civil wars of the
> Fronde from 1648 to 1653. In 1661, when Louis XIV assumed power, Anne retired to
> a convent. Queen Anne is the central figure of
> Alexandre Dumas's Three Musketeers (1844; translated 1846). --

Let not the fierce sun dry one tear of pain before thyself
hast wiped it from the sufferer's eye.
H. P. Blavatsky (1831-1891)
