French royalty, the daughter of Lady Frances Grey and Henry Grey and the granddaughter of Queen Mary Tudor. In spite of her objections, she was forced into a political marriage to Guildford, the son the Duke of Northumberland, in order to become a consort to rule England. She was ten years old when Henry VIII died, (1/28/1547) leaving the throne to ten-year-old Edward VI. During Edward's six-year reign, state affairs were handled by his uncle, Edward Seymour. Edward VI died at 16, 7/06/1553 OS, Greenwich, England of consumption or poison, the cause unresolved.
Through an unstable period, unscrupulous politicians sought to control the Protestant Lady Jane Grey to put her on the throne, but her rule only lasted for nine days before a coup by Mary, daughter of Henry VIII and his first wife, Catherine. Mary Tudor was crowned Queen and Lady Jane was executed 2/12/1554.
