Anne Sophia (17 March 1591 - 23 November 1663) was the eldest child of Alexander I of England and his second wife, Elizabeth Howard. She had one younger full brother and five elder half siblings. She became Queen of Aquitaine via her marriage to Henry II of Aquitaine. She led troops during the Siege of Bordeaux and refused to flee, although she was seven months pregnant. Her husband died in 1646, and she continued to influence her son until she died in 1663. She was a patron of the arts, and was one of the most literary women of her day.
