Lady Jane Grey
Birth: 1537
Braunstone
Death: Feb. 12, 1554
London

British Royalty. Queen of England. Jane was the daughter of Henry Grey, Marquis of Dorset (later Duke of Suffolk) and Frances Brandon, a neice of Henry VIII. Jane married Guildford Dudley in May of 1553. She then became the unwitting pawn in the schemes of the Duke of Northumberland, her father-in-law, to prevent the catholic Princess Mary from gaining the throne and to see his own son as King. The Duke was able to convince the seriously ill Edward VI to name Jane as his successor. She reigned as Queen for 9 days.  She and her husband were taken into custody by Mary's forces on 20 July 1553, and remained in the Tower of London until their execution for treason in 1554. (bio by: VampireRed)
