Anna of Saxony (23 December 1544 – 18 December 1577) was the heiress of Maurice, Elector of Saxony, and Agnes, eldest daughter of Philip I, Landgrave of Hesse.[1] Maurice's only son, Albert, died in infancy. Anna was the second wife of William the Silent.

Anna was born and died in Dresden. Her wealth drew many suitors;[2] before the proposal of Orange in 1560, there were negotiations with the Swedish royal house. She accepted the suit of William I of Orange, and they were married on 25 August 1561.[2]
