As Augustus the Strong's official mistress Anna Constantia received the title "Imperial Countess von Cosel".
As an adequate city palace he built Taschenberg Palace, outside the inner Dresden castle complex, for her, with an arched bridge connecting his palace with his favorite mistress's building. August proposed marriage in writing to his lover, who bore him three children, but he did not keep his promise.
For seven years Countess Cosel accompanied Augustus the Strong in everyday life and as his consort in festivities. Today her palace is a 5-star Kempenski Hotel.
