12December

Anne of Denmark

On this day in 1574, Anne of Denmark, the wife of King James VI, was born.

Anne and James were a devoted couple, despite James' attachments to men. They had married by proxy in Oslo in 1589 and had a total of eight children together. Anne was very fond of the entertainment at court, particularly masked balls in which she was often a keen participant. Her husband was to outlive her by six years after her death in 1619.


Today's recipe: Korean beef hotpot is a comfort food classic.
