Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda was an outrageously wealthy Spanish aristocrat, born on 29 June 1540. She was considered one of the greatest beauties of her day in Europe, even though she lost an eye in a sword fight with one of her father's young pages. Perhaps the eyepatch made her more intriguing. She married at the age of 12 to Ruy Gómez de Silva, Prince of Eboli.
