Venerable Anne de Guigné (April 25, 1911 - January 14, 1922) was a young French girl who is being considered for sainthood by the Roman Catholic Church.

Life
Anne was the oldest of four siblings. Her parents were wealthy and prominent. Anne's father was Count Jacques de Guigné, second lieutenant in the 13th Battalion, Chambéry of Chasseurs Alpins. Anne's mother was born Antoinette de Charette on September 19, 1886, the great-niece of François de Charette, the well-known General who led the soldiers of France in the Battle of Patay. Anne's maternal grandmother Francoise Eulalie Marie Madeleine de Bourbon-Busset was a direct descendant of the sixth son of King Louis IX of France, Robert, Count of Clermont.

Anne was the oldest of 4 children, and up until the age of 4, was seen as a jealous and proud girl. On July 29, 1915, Anne's father died leading an attack against the Germans. When Anne's mother told Anne, she was a changed child. With mature understanding, she told her mother that her father was up with the angels. After that day, Anne was no longer rude and jealous. Instead she worked hard to please her mother, and became very religious.

Death
Anne began to have headaches due to spinal pain, but still did her work in school. It became so bad, and she slipped into a coma, and the doctor saw she had meningitis. At 5:25 am, Saturday, January 14, 1922, Anne died peacefully.

Cause for beatification
She was declared Venerable on March 3, 1990 by Pope John Paul II.
