Anne de Mowbray, 8th Countess of Norfolk

Anne de Mowbray, 8th Countess of Norfolk Duchess of York and Duchess of Norfolk was the child bride of Richard of Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York, one of the Princes in the Tower. She died at the age of eight, she was born at Framlingham Castle in Suffolk, the only child of John de Mowbray, 4th Duke of Norfolk and Lady Elizabeth Talbot. Her maternal grandparents were John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury and his second wife Lady Margaret Beauchamp; the death of her father in 1476 left Anne a wealthy heiress. On 15 January 1478, aged 5, she was married in St Stephen's Chapel, Westminster, to Richard of Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York, the 4-year-old younger son of Edward IV and his queen, Elizabeth Woodville. Anne died at Greenwich in London, nearly two years before her husband disappeared into the Tower of London with his older brother, Edward V. Upon her death, her heirs would have been her cousins, Viscount Berkeley and John, Lord Howard, but by an act of Parliament in January 1483 the rights were given to her husband Richard, with reversion to his descendants, failing that, to the descendants of his father Edward IV.

Anne was buried in a lead coffin in the Chapel of St. Erasmus of Formiae in Westminster Abbey; when that chapel was demolished in about 1502 to make way for the Henry VII Lady Chapel, Anne's coffin was moved to a vault under the Abbey of the Minoresses of St. Clare without Aldgate, run by nuns of the Order of Poor Clares Franciscans, her coffin disappeared. In December 1964, construction workers in Stepney accidentally dug into the vault and found Anne's coffin, it was opened, her remains were analyzed by scientists and entombed in Westminster Abbey in May 1965. Her red hair was still on her skull and her shroud still wrapped around her. Westminster Abbey is the presumed resting place of her husband, Richard Duke of York, his brother Edward V, in the Henry VII Chapel. Dukes of Norfolk family tree Lee, Sidney, ed.. "Mowbray, John".

Anthology 2

Anthology 2 is a compilation album by the Beatles, released on 18 March 1996 by Apple Records as part of The Beatles Anthology series. It features rarities and live performances from the 1965 sessions for Help! to the sessions just prior to their trip to India in February 1968. It is the second in a trilogy of albums with Anthology 1 and Anthology 3, all of which tie in with the televised special The Beatles Anthology; the opening track is "Real Love", the second of the two recordings that reunited the Beatles for the first time since the band's break-up. Like its predecessor, the album topped the Billboard 200 album chart and has been certified 4× Platinum by the RIAA; the Anthology albums were remastered and made available digitally on the iTunes Store on 14 June 2011, individually and as part of the Anthology Box Set. "Real Love", as with "Free as a Bird", is based on a demo made by John Lennon and given to Paul McCartney by Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono. The three surviving Beatles added guitars, drums and backing vocals, but unlike with the previous song, did not re-work the lyrics or music.

"Real Love" remained credited to Lennon, becoming the only Beatles song to have Lennon by himself in the writing credit. Disc one contains three unreleased compositions, one being an instrumental entitled "12-Bar Original", recorded for Rubber Soul but subsequently unused. Two other songs recorded for Help!, "If You've Got Trouble" and "That Means a Lot", were abandoned and never returned to again by the band. The former was slated to be the usual vocal spot for Ringo Starr on Help!, the latter was given to singer P. J. Proby; the version of "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" from the group's famed August 1965 show at Shea Stadium but left out of the documentary about the show appears for the first time. Disc two contains work-in-progress versions of tracks from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour; the take of "Strawberry Fields Forever" that made up the first minute of the released record appears in its entirety on track three. Included are three songs that were started during this period – "Only a Northern Song", "You Know My Name" and "Across the Universe" – but would not see release until years in 1969 and 1970.

McCartney had hoped to include "Carnival of Light", an unreleased experimental piece that the Beatles recorded during the sessions for Sgt. Pepper in 1967. Among the songs that were in the running for inclusion on the compilation but passed over were the following: the 1965 Shea Stadium performance of "She's a Woman". Like its predecessor, Anthology 2 sold well. In the United States, it debuted at number one; the next week, it fell to number two, selling 201,000 copies, being replaced by Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill. The album spent two more weeks on the top 10, at number four number eight, remaining on the Billboard 200 for 22 consecutive weeks and re-entering the charts twice, marking a number 96 reach during the Christmas season of 1996. In all, the album sold 1,707,000 copies. In the United Kingdom, the success was similar; the first Anthology album had debuted at number two when it was released in November 1995, but its successor reached number one, where it remained for one week.

The album spent a total of 13 weeks on the UK Album Chart. Reviewing the compilation in March 1996, Billboard's reviewer described it as a "precious window into the most lucrative creative collaboration in the history of popular music". All tracks except where noted. All tracks are written by Lennon–McCartney, except where noted
