History

Any or Anies (Martin-Rieux) was called Aneia in 646, Ania in 1218 and under the Ancien Régime was formerly part of the "généralité" of the town of Soissons and the bailiwick and electorate of the town of Guise (diocese of Laon). Today it is part of the Canton of Hirson, arrondissement of Vervins, in the Diocese of Soissons.

The Patron Saint is Saint Médard.

Any was once the capital of a lordship. There is mention of this village in the miracles of Saint Thierry, who lived in the 11th century. he called it "villa" and indicated it as being placed in the middle of the forest of Thiérache in the 11th century. Any was owned by Irmine, the daughter of Dagobert II, king of France. In 676 she gave the territory to de Trèves, the Abbot of Oeren, for the cure of her soul and that of her husband, Count Herman. The abbots of Saint-Laurent de Joinville had formerly owned a tax free estate at Any, said to be one of the oldest in the kingdom.[3]
