Profile

Born an aristocrat, she was orphaned young and inherited a large fortune. Though she spent her money to support the poor, she attracted a steady stream of greedy suitors. To avoid marriage to a man named Agarenus, a union supported by Emperor Basil the Macedonian, Anne fled from Constantinople to Epirus in Leucadia c.869. She lived there the rest of her life as a hermitess.
