Anne of Denmark (1574-1619), Queen of James I

Sitter associated with 44 portraits
The daughter of Frederick II of Denmark, Anne married James VI of Scotland in 1589. During her time in Scotland she converted from Lutheranism to Catholicism, but James allowed her to practise in private and her early life with him was relatively happy. Anne and James had seven children, although only Henry, Elizabeth and Charles lived beyond early childhood. In England, Anne became one of the most important cultural patrons of her day, commissioning artists, writers - most notably Ben Jonson - composers and choreographers, and collecting paintings.
