Anna Pavlovna of Russia

Anna Pavlovna of Russia (Russian: Анна Павловна [ˈanːə ˈpavləvnə]; Dutch: Anna Paulowna [ˈɑnaː pəˈloːnaː] (listen); 18 January [O.S. 7 January] 1795 – 1 March 1865) was a queen of the Netherlands by marriage to king William II of the Netherlands. She was a Russian patriot who upheld a strict royal etiquette in the Netherlands, where she never felt at home, and identified more as an Imperial Russian Grand Duchess than a Dutch queen. She had no political influence, but was active within charity.
