Anna Katharina von Brandenburg


European royalty, queen-consort of Denmark and Norway from 1597 to 1612 as the first spouse of King Christian IV of Denmark.

Anne Catherine was born to Joachim Frederick, Margrave of Brandenburg and his first wife Catherine of Brandenburg-Küstrin. Christian met her on his journey in Germany in 1595 and decided to marry her. Anne Catherine became Queen of Denmark on 27 November 1597 when she was married to Christian IV. The wedding took place in the castle of Haderslevhus in South Jutland the year after the coronation of Christian IV. She was crowned queen in 1598. Together they had six children, among them Christian, the Prince-Elect (10 April 1603 – 2 June 1647), who died a year before his father, and Frederik III (18 March 1609 – 9 February 1670) who introduced absolute monarchy in Denmark. Her son, Ulrik (2 February 1611–12 August 1633), was murdered. Their two daughters, Sophia (4 January 1605 – 7 September 1605) and Elisabeth (16 March 1606 – 24 October 1608), and the elder son, Frederick (15 August 1599 – 9 September 1599), died at a very young age.

Anne Catherine of Brandenburg died in Copenhagen on 8 April 1612 and was buried in the Roskilde Cathedral.
