The details

Anna Margaret of Hesse-Homburg, (31 August 1629 in Homburg – 3 August 1686 in Oberkotzau), was a Landgravine of Hesse-Homburg by birth and by marriage Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Wiesenburg.


Anna Margaret was the only daughter of Landgrave Frederick I of Hesse-Homburg (1585–1638) from his marriage to Margaret Elizabeth (1604–1667), the daughter of Count Christopher of Leiningen-Westerburg.

From 1659, she employed her goddaughter Johanna Eleonora von Merlau. Johanna Eleonora would later marry Johann Wilhelm Petersen and formulate a radical form of pietism.
