In 1308, Herman died, and their son John succeeded him.

Second marriageEdit

In 1310 Anna married Henry VI the Good, Duke of Wrocław,[1] son of Henry V the Fat and his wife Elisabeth of Greater Poland.[citation needed] They had three daughters:

  • Elisabeth of Brieg (ca. 1311 – 20 February? 1328), married before 10 January 1322 to Duke Konrad I of Oleśnica.
  • Euphemia of Brieg (Ofka) (ca. 1312 – 21 March after 1384), married before 29 November 1325 to Duke Bolesław the Elder of Niemodlin (Falkenberg).
  • Margaret of Brieg (ca. 1313 – 8 March 1379), Abbess of St. Clara in Wrocław (1359).

Anna died in 1327 in Legnica. She left her husband a widower, and she had failed to produce a son. When her husband died ten years later, Wrocław was merged with the Bohemian crown.
