-------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_of_Foix-Candale -------------------- Anna of Foix-Candale (1484 – 26 July 1506) was the third Queen consort of King Vladislaus II of Hungary, and his only wife to produce an heir.

Anna was the daughter of Gaston of Foix, Count of Candale, and Infanta Catherine of Navarre.

(Anna's father was a relative of her mother's father.)

Anna grew up at the French royal court in Blois. She was educated in Latin and the Classics. The nephew of the French monarch, the Duke of Longueville, is reported to have been in love with her and wished to marry her, but it was prevented because of a political marriage was planned for Anna. The elderly, twice-divorced and childless King Vladislaus II of Hungary of the Jagiellon dynasty had been searching a wife capable of giving him a son. His sights were set on a powerful alliance, closely related to French royalty was acceptable. Anna was engaged in 1500, the marriage contract confirmed in 1501, and wed in 1502 at the French court. On her way to Hungary, she was much celebrated in Italy, and In Venice, a conflict was caused when France and Hungary was unable to agree about whom should pay the expences. On 29 September 1502, Anna wed Vladislaus in Székesfehérvár and she was crowned Queen of Hungary there that same day.[1]

Anna brought a French court and French advisors with her to Hungary. The relationhsip was happy at least from the king's view, and he is reported to have regarded her as a friend, assistant and a trusted advisor. She was economically indebted to Venice and was said to favourise Venice. In 1506, her signature was placed on a document alongside the kings regarding an alliance with Hasburg and Jagellon. Anna enjoied great popularity after the birth of a son, but the pregnancies ruined her health. She died in childbirth.
