hey wats up In actuallity, the sons of Edward IV of England did not 'disspear' until after 1485. If he did 'disspear' strangely no-one - not even Henry VII -mentioned it! 10:50, 1 November 2007 (UTC) Jim Jacobs.

What is the problem with the horrific changing of verb tense throughout the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:36, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Holy crap there's some awful grammar in this article. Needs a serious looking at to fix. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:58, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Regent of France[edit]

I have heard that Anne was the Regent of France during the absence of her husband in 1494-1495 (during her first marriage) and in 1499-1503 and 1509-1513 (during her second marriage). I have not found this in the article. If it is missing, was it true? Or is it simply missig in the article? If she really was regent, then it is very notable to include. -- (talk) 17:10, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

You may have confused Anne of Brittany with her sister-in-law, Anne of France. Anne of France was a regent of France. Surtsicna (talk) 18:45, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, princess Anne of France was regent in France during the minority of her brother. But I distinctly remember, that the queen of France, Anne of Brittany, was regent in France during the absence of her two husbands; when they participated in the wars in Italy. At least in 1494-95. However, it was a long time ago I read about it, so I cant include this myself as I don't remember the reference. I have not read the article in wikipedia before and just assumed that it was already here, so I was suprised when I found it was not. That made me uncertain. But I don't think it is a confusion, as I remember the circumstances so well.-- (talk) 11:40, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
The article does say that her sister-in-law was regent during her first husbands stay in Italy. But it says nothing about who was regent during her second husbands stay in Italy. Perahps that was confused somehow. Was she regent that time? -- (talk) 23:52, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Knighthood for Women[edit]

Information at Amboise indicated Anne of Brittany established a Knighthood for Women. Anne Bolyne was one and it is said that men came from all of all over Europe to find a wife from her Knighted Women of Merit and Virtue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:27, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Was she regent of France during her second marriage?[edit]

The article states that she was never regent of France during the absence of her first husband, Charles. However, it says nothing at all about whether she was ever regent during the absence of her second husband, Louis. He seemed to have been absent from France several years during the 1500s and the 1510s. Was she ever regent then? --Aciram (talk) 14:43, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
