Biography

Anna Margaret of Hesse-Homburg, (31 August 1629 in Homburg – 3 August 1686 in Oberkotzau), was a Landgravine of Hesse-Homburg by birth and by marriage Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Wiesenburg.

Life

Anna Margaret was the only daughter of Landgrave Frederick I of Hesse-Homburg (1585–1638) from his marriage to Margaret Elizabeth (1604–1667), the daughter of Count Christopher of Leiningen-Westerburg.

She married on 5 May 1650 in Homburg to Duke Philip Louis of Holstein-Wiesenburg (1620–1689), who purchased Wiesenburg Castle and the associated Lordship in 1663.

From 1659, she employed her goddaughter Johanna Eleonora von Merlau. Johanna Eleonora would later marry Johann Wilhelm Petersen and formulate a radical form of pietism. At court, Johanna Eleonora met Philipp Jacob Spener and Johann Jakob Schütz and developed a deep friendship with Anna Margaret's daughter Sophie Elisabeth.
