Death: Feb. 23, 1554

English nobility. Marquis of Dorset, Duke of Suffolk. Son of Thomas Grey, husband of Frances Brandon, a neice of Henry VIII. Grey was a powerful political ally to John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland. He openly opposed Princess Mary, and helped Dudley install his daughter, Lady Jane Grey on the throne upon the death of Edward VI. After Jane's nine-day reign ended and Mary took the throne, Grey helped lead a revolt against Mary's forces. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London and executed for treason. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
