Facts about Lady Grey
Lady Jane Grey Biography
Lady Jane Grey is a famous sidelight to British royal history, a queen for just nine days in the Tudor era of King Henry VIII.
On 10 July 1553, four days after Edward’s death, Lady Jane’s supporters proclaimed her to be Queen.
It soon became clear that Edward’s half-sister Mary Tudor had far greater support, and after a “reign” of nine days Lady Jane Grey relinquished the crown.
She and her husband were charged with high treason, and in 1554 they were beheaded.
