Lady Jane Grey: Nine Days Queen

Sutton, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 182 pages
0 Reviews
For most, the name of Lady Jane Grey means the nine days queen, the child who was used as a pawn in the power politics of the Tudor realm by both her parents, the Suffolks, and Northumberlands. Alison Plowden's book tells the tragic story of Jane's life, and death, but also reveals her to be a woman of unusual strength of conviction, with an intelligence and steady faith beyond her years. The story also offers us an insight into the least known of Henry VIII's wives, Katherine Parr.
