English Nobility. The Duke of Clarence, he was the son of John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland and Jane Guildford. As a pawn in his father's schemes, he was wed to Lady Jane Grey on May 25, 1553. At the death of Edward VI, Jane was named Queen. She created Guildford as Duke of Clarence, believing he had no right to the title of King. They reigned for nine days. Guildford Dudley and Jane were taken into custody by Princess Mary's forces in 1553, and imprisoned in the Tower of London. They were tried and found guilty of treason. He was beheaded on February 12, 1554, while his wife watched from her window.
