Nine Days a Queen: The Short Life and Reign of Lady Jane Grey

Out of stock
Though Lady Jane Grey never aspires to be Queen of England, her calculating parents are eager to see her attached to power. Jane is fifteen in 1553 when they conspire with a powerful duke. He arranges her marriage to his son and convinces an ailing King Edward-Jane’s cousin-to proclaim her successor to the throne. When news of Edward’s death arrives, Jane shivers with fear, but resigned to her fate, she prepares to begin her reign. Author’s note. Bibliography.
