Ana de Mendoza de la Cerda Éboli, princesa de (ä´nä ŧħā māndō´thä ŧħā lä thār´dä prēnthā´sä ŧħā ā´bōlē), 1540–92, Spanish noblewoman. After the death (1573) of her husband, Ruy Gómez, principe de Éboli, she is supposed by romantic tradition to have had an affair with Antonio Pérez. She was certainly involved in political intrigues with him and shared his disgrace after the murder of Juan de Escobedo. She spent the years after 1579 in prison and enforced retirement. She appears in Schiller's Don Carlos.
