Anna Leszczynska (Trzebnica, Poland, 25 May 1699 – 20 June 1717 in Grafinthal, Germany), was a Polish noblewoman from the Leszczynski family and later Royal Princess of Poland when her father became King in 1704.
Anna Leszczynska (1699–1717) Wikipedia
Anna was the eldest daughter of Stanislaw Leszczynski (who became King of Poland in 1704 and later Duke of Lorraine) and his wife, born Countess Catherine Opalinska. She was named after her paternal grandmother, born Princess Anna Jablonowska.
Her only sister, Maria Leszczynska, was born in 1703 and later became Queen of France as the wife of Louis XV. Between his two daughters, Anna seems the favorite of King Stanislaw. She received a careful education.
Anna died of pneumonia aged eighteen in Grafinthal cloister, in the district of Mandelbachtal in Saarpfalz-Kreis. Many doctors called to her bedside by her father have likely accelerated her death, multiplying the purges and bleeding.
Her death devastated Leszczynski family, especially her father. King Stanislaw asked his second daughter Maria never pronounce the name of Anna again before him and she observe this instructions so carefully even in front of her husband King Louis XV, that years later he was surprised to learn that she had a sister.
