Physical Attributes & Initial Impression of Personality
Anne carried both the de medici swarthy looks of her ancestors as the clear skin and dark hair of her mother, to whom she bore a physical resemblance. She was not considered a pretty child. She has a preoccupation with her health.
Anne suffered as a child from an eye infection; for medical treatment, she was sent to France. She lived with her grandmother, Henrietta Maria of France, and on the latter's death with her aunt, Henrietta Anne, Duchesse d'Orléans. Anne returned from France in 1670. In about 1673, Anne made the acquaintance of Sarah Jennings, who became her close friend.
