Abstract:

"'Good people, I am come hither to die, and by a law I am condemned to the same.' These were the heartbreaking words of a seventeen-year-old girl, Lady Jane Grey, as she stood on the scaffold on a cold February morning in 1554. Her death for high treason sent shockwaves through the Tudor world and served as a gruesome reminder to all who aspired to the Crown that the axe could fall at any time. Jane is known to history as 'the Nine-Day Queen, ' but her reign lasted, in fact, for thirteen days. The human and emotional aspects of her story have often been ignored, although she is remembered as one of the Tudor Era's most tragic victims. While this is doubtlessly true, it is only part of the complex jigsaw of Jane's story. She was a remarkable individual with a charismatic personality who earned the admiration and affection of many of those who knew her. Furthermore, the recent trend of trying to highlight her achievements has actually further obscured the real Jane: a young religious radical who saw herself as an advocate of the reformed faith--Protestantism--and ultimately became a martyr for it."--Jacket.
