Helena Bonham Carter as Lady Jane Grey (Lady Jane, 1986)
Lady Jane Grey: Daughter of Frances Grey - daughter of Mary, Queen of France (Dowager Queen of France, Duchess of Suffolk and younger sister of King Henry VIII; and the Duke of Suffolk, Charles Brandon) and Henry Grey, Duke of Suffolk.
When his mother’s cousin, King Edward VI was soon to die of illness, he appointed her as the heir to the throne, instead of his sister Mary Tudor -daughter of King Henry and Catherine of Aragon. The young King was a devotee protestant and wanted to avoid England falling into the will of the Pope and the Vatican and, knowing that his older sister would make the country Catholic again, he declared her and Elizabeth, his other sister, bastards so they could not claim the throne.
The Duke of Northumberland, John Dudley, who was the King’s adviser after the execution of his uncles Thomas and Edward - both judged for treason, looking to use the King for their personal gain, married Jane to his youngest son Guilford Dudley, expecting him to rule the country on his behalf by controlling the Queen. The Duke was unpleasantly surprised to see how smart and strong willed the young Queen was, wanting to rule on her own, ignoring his advice.
The people of England disliked Jane’s father-in-law and supported Mary’s claim and catholic beliefs. The people joined Mary and so did weapon suppliers and later the noblemen -knowing that there was no way for Jane to win and seeking a way to survived and keep their wealth and lands, they begged for Mary’s forgiveness.
Mary was successful in her rebellion and was proclaimed Queen of England, France and Ireland, putting an end to the Lady Grey’s reign after only 9 days. Later, despite her personal desire not to end Jane’s life, Mary agreed to the execution of Lady Grey’s execution -as well as her husband’s.
Lady Jane Grey was beheaded on February 12th, 1554 at the Tower of London, England.

Helena Bonham Carter as Queen Lady Jane Grey in Lady Jane (1986).
3 years before his death, Henry VIII made the Third Succession Act of 1544, which restored his daughters, Mary and Elizabeth, to the line of succession. Henry’s will stated that if none of his three children should have decadents, the throne would be passed to the heirs of his younger sister, Mary. Lady Jane Grey just happened to be the granddaughter of Mary Tudor.
In the summer of 1553, the 15 year old Edward VI knew he was dying. Knowing that when he shall die, his half sister Mary would ascended to throne, he decided to name his protestant cousin, Lady Jane Grey, as his successor instead. Edward wanted to ensure his protestant legacy, and Mary was a devout Roman Catholic.
3 days after the death of Edward VI, Jane was informed that she was now the Queen. There’s no doubt that she was probably surprised by this, and she even stated later that she accepted the crown with reluctance.
On July 10th of 1553, Jane was proclaimed Queen of England, France and Ireland. However, she refused to name her husband, Lord Guilford Dudley, as King. Instead, she only made him Duke of Clarence.
Jane’s time of royalty would not last long, though. As soon as Princess Mary heard of her brothers death, she began to rally supporters for her succession to the throne. There was a plan for troops to capture Mary, but the Privy Council switched their allegiance and proclaimed Mary as Queen.
Jane reigned for just 9 days, and has been given the title of the “Nine-Day Queen.” She is also the shortest reigning monarch in history. On July 19th of 1553, Jane was imprisoned in the Tower of London, as well as her husband. Princess Mary then ascended to the throne to become Queen Mary I.
Jane, her husband, her husbands two brothers, and Thomas Cranmer were all charged with high treason. The trial took place on November 13th of 1553, and all defendants were found guilty. It is likely that Jane would have not been executed if the rebellion of Thomas Wyatt the Younger didn’t happen, but fate seemed to have been going downhill for Jane, and quickly. Her sentence was to be “burned alive on Tower Hill or beheaded as the Queen pleases”.
On the morning of February 12th of 1554, Jane was taken to Tower Green for her execution, just after her husband. While upon the scaffold she gave this speech: “Good people, I am come hither to die, and by a law I am condemned to the same. The fact, indeed against the Queen’s highness was unlawful, and the consenting thereunto by me: but touching the procurement and desire thereof by me or on my behalf, I do wash my hands thereof in innocency, before God, and the face of you, good Christian people, this day.”
Jane then handed her gloves and handkerchief to her maid, and the executioner asked her for forgiveness, which she granted. She said to him, “I pray you dispatch me quickly.” She then asked, “Will you take it off before i lay me down?” The execution answered, “No, madam.” Jane blindfolded herself, but then failed to find the block with her hands. She cried out, “What shall I do? Where is it?” The Deputy Lieutenant of the Tower helped her find her way to it. Jane then laid her head on the block, speaking the words: “Lord, into thy hands I commend my spirit!”
Jane and her husband were buried in unmarked graves in the Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula on the north side of Tower Green. She was just 16 or 17 years old when she died.
