Anna spent her childhood in Denmark and Germany before marrying King James VI of Scotland at the age of fourteen in 1589. Despite her youth, Anna had already absorbed many cultural influences that would influence her married life in Scotland and then in England, after the Union of the Crowns in 1603. This paper demonstrates that Anna’s significant patronage of theatre, architecture and art reflected her Danish heritage and had lasting effects on British culture.
