Lady Anne Mackintosh was the wife of the Highland chief of Clan Mackintosh during Scotland's last great war against England for Scotland's freedom. While her husband fought on the King of England's side, Lady Anne, age 23, made the unheard-of move of calling the clan to battle, herself, for the other side, for Bonnie Prince Charlie. The prince was Charles Stuart -- "Bonny Prince Charlie" --and the rightful king of Scotland. In those days, any man who raised a regiment became its colonel. Of course Lady Anne did not ride into battle (although the English newspapers accused her of it) but ever since that time she was known to Scotland and to history as "Colonel Anne." With the help of five retainers, she routed the King's army when it threatened her beloved prince.
