Anne of Bohemia

Anne of Bohemia (1366 - 1394) was the daughter of Emperor Charles IV of Bohemia. She was the queen consort of Richard II of England, whom she married in 1382. They had no children. Anne's death, from plague, twelve years later, was a devastating blow to Richard, whose subsequent unwise conduct lost him the throne. She is buried at Westminster.
