*Looks like we have another Cersei*

Born in 1729, Sophie von Anhalt-Zerbst commomly known as 'Y' enjoyed numerous marital prospects due to her mother’s well-regarded bloodlines. Y and her new husband had a rocky marriage from the start. Though the young Prussian princess had been imported to produce an heir, eight years passed without a child. Some historians believe her husband was unable to consummate the marriage, while others think he was infertile. Desperately unhappy in their married lives, the husband and Y both began extramarital affairs, she with Sergei Saltykov, a Russian military officer. When Y gave birth to a son, Paul, in 1754, gossips murmured that Saltykov—not the husband—had fathered him. There is little debate over the paternity of Y’s three additional children. It’s believed that none of them were fathered by the husband. Give us 'Y'.
