  • 1411
    Age 20
    Anne Mortimer died soon after the birth of her son Richard on 22 September 1411.
    More Details Hide Details She was buried at Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, once the site of Kings Langley Palace, perhaps in the conventual church that houses the tombs of her husband's parents Edmund of Langley and Isabella of Castile. After Anne Mortimer's death, Richard, Earl of Cambridge, married Maud Clifford, divorced wife of John Neville, 6th Baron Latimer, and daughter of Thomas de Clifford, 6th Baron de Clifford, but had no issue by her.
  • 1405
    Age 14
    According to R. A. Griffiths, Edmund Mortimer's sisters, Anne and Eleanor, who were in the care of their mother until her death in 1405, were not well treated by Henry IV and were described as 'destitute' after her death. In May 1406, Anne married Richard of Conisburgh, the second son of Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York, and his first wife Isabel of Castile, the daughter and coheir of Pedro the Cruel, King of Castile and Leon. The marriage took place without parental consent and was validated on 23 May 1408 by papal dispensation.

  • 1399
    Age 8
    On 30 September 1399, the fortunes of Anne Mortimer and her brothers and sister changed entirely.
    More Details Hide Details Richard II was deposed by the House of Lancaster led by Henry Bolingbroke, who became King Henry IV and had his own son, the future King Henry V, recognised as heir apparent at his first Parliament. Anne's brothers, Edmund and Roger, were kept in custody by the new king at Windsor Castle and Berkhampstead Castle, but were treated honourably, and for part of the time brought up with the king's own children John and Philippa.
  • 1398
    Age 7
    King Richard II, the grandson of Edward III through his eldest son, had no issue, thus Anne's father, Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March, was considered Richard's heir presumptive during his lifetime, and at his death in Ireland on 20 July 1398, his claim to the crown passed to his eldest son, Edmund.

  • 1390
    Anne Mortimer was born at New Forest, Westmeath, one of her family's Irish estates, on 27 December 1390, the eldest of the four children of Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March, and Lady Eleanor Holland.

Anne Mortimer's mother was the daughter of Thomas Holland, 2nd Earl of Kent, and Lady Alice FitzAlan, the daughter of Richard Fitzalan, 10th Earl of Arundel, and his second wife, Eleanor, daughter of Henry, 3rd Earl of Lancaster, grandson of King Henry III. Thomas Holland was the grandson and senior heir to Joan of Kent. Anne Mortimer was not only a descendant of Edward I and earlier English monarchs through her mother, but more importantly, a descendant of King Edward III through her grandparents, Edmund Mortimer, 3rd Earl of March, and Philippa of Clarence, daughter of King Edward III's second surviving son, Lionel of Antwerp.
