      John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland. Father of Guildford Dudley, who he arranged to marry Jane Grey. He was a plotter to prevent Mary I from taking the throne, but his scheme to place Jane and Guildford as monarchs ended in him losing his life, as well as the lives of his son Dudley and daughter-in-law Jane. http://tudorhistory.org/people/jdudley/jdudley.jpg

      John Dudley - Duke of Northumberland - For a very short time the father-in-law of Lady Jane Grey, the nine-days Queen of England. He was executed when Mary took the throne. His son Guilford married Jane and his second son Robert was the beloved favorite of Queen Elizabeth I.

      John Dudley, Ist Duke of Northumberland, together with William Pembroke, 1st Earl of Pembroke arranged the political match of their children in a plan to secure the succession of Lady Jane Grey and to graft their lineage onto the throne of England. Guildford Dudley married the Lady Jane Grey and Henry Herbert married the 13 year old Lady Catherine Grey on the 25th of May 1553. For Lady Jane and Guilford the plan ended in their execution along with John Dudley. The Pembokes were pardoned.

    Tudor portrait, said to be of Lady Jane Grey.

    Jane Parker, Lady Rochford married the brother of Anne Boleyn. She assisted in convicting him having incest with his sister, but it has been debated whether her testimony could be believed. When Henry married the teenage Kathryn Howard, Jane became her lady in waiting and assisted her in seeing her lover, Culpepper. When this was discovered, Jane, Queen Kathryn (barely 17) and Culpepper all were beheaded.

    Lady Jane Grey

    Jane Grey - The teenage nine-days queen. In order to insure a Protestant succession, John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland, married his son Guildford to Jane. She was declared Queen after Edward's death, but was deposed by Mary. Content to imprison her and her husband, Mary had Jane, Guildford and John executed after the Wyatt Rebellion. Robert Dudley, Elizabeth I's lifelong love was Guildford's brother. His connection to this treasonous family might have been one reason she never married him.
