The details

Anna of Austria (1275–1327) was a daughter of Albert I of Germany and his wife Elisabeth of Tirol. She was a member of the House of Habsburg.

First marriage

Anna first married in 1295 in Graz. Her husband was Herman, Margrave of Brandenburg-Salzwedel. They had four children:

  • Jutta of Brandenburg (1301–1353), heiress of Coburg, married to Count Henry VIII of Henneberg
  • John (1302–1317), succeeded his father, but died young
  • Matilde of Brandenburg (died 1323) married Henry IV the Faithful
  • Agnes of Brandenburg (1297–1334), heiress of the Altmark, married with margrave Waldemar of Brandenburg (1281–1381) and in 1319 to Duke Otto of Brunswick-Göttingen (1290–1344).

In 1308, Herman died, and their son John succeeded him.

Second marriage

In 1310 Anna married Henry VI the Good, Duke of Wrocław, son of Henry V the Fat and his wife Elisabeth of Greater Poland. They had three daughters:

  • Elisabeth of Brieg (ca. 1311 – 20 February? 1328), married before 10 January 1322 to Duke Konrad I of Oleśnica.
  • Euphemia of Brieg (Ofka) (ca. 1312 – 21 March after 1384), married before 29 November 1325 to Duke Bolesław the Elder of Niemodlin (Falkenberg).
  • Margaret of Brieg (ca. 1313 – 8 March 1379), Abbess of St. Clara in Wrocław (1359).

Anna died in 1327 in Legnica. She left her husband a widower, and she had failed to produce a son. When her husband died ten years later, Wrocław was merged with the Bohemian crown.
