Anna (Disney)

Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen. She is voiced by Kristen Bell as an adult. At the beginning of the film, Livvy Stubenrauch and Katie Lopez provided her speaking and singing voice as a young child, respectively. Agatha Lee Monn portrayed her as a nine-year-old (singing).

Created by co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, Anna is loosely based on Gerda, a character of the Danish fairytale The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. In the Disney film adaptation, Anna is depicted as the princess of Arendelle, a fictional Scandinavian kingdom and the younger sister of Princess Elsa ( Idina Menzel), who is the heiress to the throne and possesses the elemental ability to create and control ice and snow. When Elsa exiles herself from the kingdom after inadvertently sending Arendelle into an eternal winter on the evening of her coronation, fearless and faithful Anna is determined to set out on a dangerous adventure to bring her sister back and save both her kingdom and her family.

The original fairytale in general and the character of the Snow Queen in particular posed long-term problems to adapt into a feature-length production. Several film executives, including Walt Disney, made their attempts towards the story and numerous adaptations were shelved as the filmmakers could not work out the characters. Finally, directors Buck and Lee solved the issue by portraying Anna and Elsa as sisters, establishing a dynamic relationship between the characters.

Anna has received widespread acclaim from film critics, who praised the determination and enthusiasm in her personality. Bell was also extolled by various reviewers for her performance in the film.

Anna (apple)

Anna apple is a dual purpose cultivar of domesticated apple that is very early ripening and does well in warm climates.

Anna was bred by Abba Stein at the Ein Shemer kibbutz in Israel, in order to achieve a Golden Delicious-like apple, that can be cultivated in nearly tropical areas. As regular apple needs over 500 hours of chilling in order to get in blossom, Anna would flourish even with less than 300 hours, so it can be grown in warm climates. Recommended for USDA hardiness zones 5-9, or rather 6-9.

Anna was introduced to the United States in 1959, and is the most popular apple cultivar in Florida.

Anna (daughter of Boris I)

Anna (; 9th–10th century) was a Bulgarian princess and a daughter of Prince Boris I of Bulgaria (852–889).

Anna was Boris's second daughter and the youngest of six children born to his second consort, Maria, which also included the rulers Prince Vladimir (r. 889–893) and Tsar Simeon the Great (r. 893–927), the princes Gabriel and Jacob and the princess Eupraxia. Anna bears the name of Boris's sister.

Anna married the tarkan Simeon, an influential figure in the Bulgarian state. Like her older sister Eupraxia, Anna became a nun at a monastery in the Bulgarian capital Preslav later in her life. Her tombstone, unearthed in 1965 and written in Old Bulgarian and Medieval Greek, reveals that she died as a nun on 9 October of an uncertain year.

The reverse side of the stone features a portrait of the princess in a loose-fitting garment, pointing her arms sideways towards a cross-domed church on each side and holding a sceptre in her right hand. Based on this portrait, it is highly likely that Anna was a ktetor of two churches.

In the 1985 Bulgarian feature film Boris I, the role of Princess Anna is played by the actress Adriana Petrova.
