Anna was the only surviving daughter of Francis II and Margaret. After the death of her father in battle against the Burgundians, she became Duchess of Brittany. Eager to maintain Breton independence, she was wed to Maximilian I of Austria. With Aquitainian and Austrian support and troops, she and her husband led Brittany to victory during the Second Breton War of Succession. The Duke of Burgundy; John III, signed a treaty, accepting Breton independence.
Annulment and Marriage to Geoffrey
Anna and Maximilian had no children. Both mutually agreed upon an annulment, which was granted by Pope Pius III. Anna then remarried to Geoffrey of Angers. They had four children, one of whom survived infancy; Henrietta.
Anna died at Rennes in 1514 of a kidney-stone attack. Her body was interred in Rennes Cathedral, alongside her second husband.
