Anna of Saxony: The Scarlet Lady of Orange

Anna of Saxony: The Scarlet Lady of Orange

Synopsis

In the early 1570s, a scandal worthy of the court of Henry VIII set Europe’s noble courts ablaze with one of century’s most shocking marital debacles.  Anna of Saxony (1544-1577), wife of the Dutch prince and rebel leader William of Orange, had embarked on a torrid love affair with the father of one of the age’s greatest painters and was pregnant with her lover’s child.  The princess’ pregnancy and subsequent descent into madness signaled the end of a troubled royal marriage that had begun full of promise and with one of the most spectacular wedding celebrations of the age.

Since her early youth at the glittering court of Dresden, Anna had been known as a difficult child and troublemaker.  Servants complained about her violent outbursts, while courtiers bemoaned her general disregard for aristocratic female etiquette.  Upon reaching her teenage years, the princess’ guardians decided that Saxony’s enfant terrible should leave home as quickly as possible by marrying a foreign suitor in a preferably far-away land.  Enter William of Orange: handsome, charming, and heir to one of the Netherlands’ largest estates.  The fact that he was also a profligate partier and lover of women was conveniently overlooked.  Anna immediately fell for the Dutch bon vivant despite warnings from a few well-meaning relatives.  For one, William was a Catholic, while Anna adhered to the Protestant teachings of Martin Luther, critical voices cautioned, correctly predicting future trouble for the princess in the Catholic Netherlands.  Furthermore, the prince’s liege lord, the fanatical Philip II of Spain, very much disapproved of a match between his premier vassal and a “Lutheran heretic.”  There was also the issue of plain Anna’s growing obsession with the roguish William; an obsession that was not reciprocated.  In the end, the impetuous princess threw caution to the wind.  No other than William would do for a husband, she insisted, while publicly announcing that “every vein in my body heartily loves him.”

The Cossack War Against Poland 1648-51 $16.00

The Cossack War Against Poland 1648-51

The Cossack War Against Poland 1648-51

This is the true history of the war made famous by the book and movie Taras Bulba and Henry Sienkiewicz’s historical novels.  This is the story of a peasant revolt, but the peasants were the ferocious Cossack warriors of the steppes, who had as their allies the Tartars and the Ottomans.  The original book was published in 1667 and its author was, apparently, an eyewitness to these events, or at least had the opportunity to speak to the people who were actively involved in them.

George Nafziger earned his BS from Miami University in 1971, his MBA from Miami University in 1976, and his Ph.D. in Military History from The Union Institute in 1999. He served in the navy, retiring as a Captain in the US Navy Reserves. He is a former director of the Napoleonic Society of America; the Napoleonic Alliance was on the board of directors of HMGS East.

Nafziger is the owner of The Nafziger Collection publishing house, specializing in military history. As of 2013, it produces 385 different titles on military history ranging from the Middle Ages through the Korean War, with a heavy emphasis on the Wars of the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, and World War II. As a publisher of obscure military works, he is constantly seeking authors with unpublished manuscripts on military history that are seeking a publisher.
