Duchess of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel Anna Amalie


German princess, composer and patron of the arts. She became the duchess of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach by marriage, and was also regent of the states of Saxe-Weimar and Saxe-Eisenach from 1758 to 1775. She transformed her court and its surrounding into the most influential cultural centre of Germany.

Her husband died two years after their marriage and three months before their second son was born. She thus called for Wieland and Herder to help her in the education of the children. She gave generously to the arts, helping Goethe in many ways. Schiller came to Weimar, where theatre was flourishing. Important theatre groups followed and became attractions. She engaged Lessing to build the "Anna Amalia library". She composed chamber music and operas too.

She was the ninth child of Karl I (Charles I), her grandfather was Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia and her grandmother was Princess Philippine Charlotte of Prussia.

She died on 10 April 1807 in Weimar at age 67.
