Princess Ana married Prince Alexander Petrovych Tolstoy (1801-1873) but had no children.
According to a lady-in-waiting of the Russian imperial house Aleksandra Osypovna Smirova:
|“||Princess Ana did not want to get married and wanted to live in a monastery. Her father let her go, and she went to the Belmazhskaya monastery, where she was not considered to set up for the monastic life. 35 years old princess then married Tolstoy, a holy man. He submitted himself to her eccentric character and lived with her as brother.||”|
She died in Moscow on 17 July 1889.
