Lady Jane Grey
A Tudor MysteryBook - 2009
In July 1553 the death of the childless Edward VI threw theTudor dynasty into crisis. On Edward's instructions his cousin JaneGrey was proclaimed queen, only to be ousted 13 days later by hisillegitimate half sister Mary and later beheaded. In this radicalreassessment, Eric Ives rejects traditional portraits of Jane bothas hapless victim of political intrigue or Protestant martyr.Instead he presents her as an accomplished young woman with afierce personal integrity. The result is a compelling dissection bya master historian and storyteller of one of history's mostshocking injustices.
