Anne de Bourgh, Basic Character Information

Basic Information:

Age: Unknown, but somewhere around Darcy's age

Primary Residence: Rosings Park in Kent

Parents: Sir Lewis and Lady Catherine de Bourgh

Physical Characteristics: Maria Lucas wonders at how "thin and small" she is. Elizabeth sees her as being pale, thin, small, sickly and cross with insignificant (though not plain) features. Mr. Collins describes her as having a "sickly constitution" and "indifferent health" but being otherwise charming, that she would adorn the rank of duchess rather than be adorned by it, that her health has "deprived the British court of its brightest ornament" and quotes Lady Catherine in saying that she is "far superior to the handsomest of her sex; because there is that in her features which marks the young woman of distinguished birth."

So basically, we know that she is thin and small and suffers from poor health of some sort.

Personality Characteristics: We don't know much about her besides that she is typically quiet and apparently is fond of driving her pony cart and that she occasionally stops to speak with Charlotte Collins, but rarely goes into the house.
