I would like to know if there was a real Annabelle Lee? If there was who was she?

No there wasn't, it was a poem based off his thirteen-year old cousin/wife, though, changed her name in the poem to make it easier to rhyme.

lol no, he didnt change the name to rhyme... Poe never used real names, he is always refering to someone else, or a collection of other people... in this cases it is thought that it may be his late wife Virginia... but that can be debated
