Anna van Egmont

Anna van Egmont (Grave, March 1533 — Breda, March 24 1558) was a wealthy Dutch heiress who became the first wife of William the Silent, Prince of Orange. As the only child of Maximiliaan of Egmont and Françoise de Lannoy, she was "suo jure" Countess of Buren and Lady of Egmond. She was also Countess of Lingen and of Leerdam, and Lady of IJsselstein, of Borssele, of Grave, of Kranendonk, of Jaarsveld, of Kortgene, of Sint Maartensdijk, and of Odijk.

In 1551 she married William the Silent in Buren, and thereby he earned the titles Lord of Egmond and Count of Buren. By William she had three children:

* Countess Maria von Nassau (22 November, 1553 – after 23 July, 1555), died in infancy
* Philip William, Prince of Orange (19 December, 1554 – 20 February, 1618), married Eleonora of Bourbon-Condé, no issue
* Countess Maria of Nassau (7 February, 1556 – 10 October, 1616), married Count Philipp of Hohenlohe-Neuenstein, one male child

Anna was buried in Breda.
