Anna (Anne) of Bohemia, sister of Saint Agnes, was married to Henry II, duke of Silesia, in 1216. She was widowed in 1241 and served as regent of Silesia on behalf of her sons. Anna was responsible for the founding of several religious institutions, including a nunnery of Poor Clares at Breslau, in 1257, where she retired, and a hospital at Kreuzberg.
