Lady Jane Grey (1536/1537 – 12 February 1554), also known as the Nine Days Queen. She ruled England from 10 July until 19 July 1553 until Queen Mary I rightfully took the throne. Although she never had any ambition for the throne and was a victim of powerful lords, she was still executed at the Tower of London.

This very rare image of the ‘nine day Queen’ by Lucas de Heere was owned by Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough. Lady Jane is shown as a girl in her family home of Bradgate, in Leicestershire, before her ascension to the throne. Caught up in the scheming of various factions at court, the teenaged Lady Jane was used as a puppet to block the claims of the Catholic Mary Tudor. Ousted from the throne, Lady Jane was executed at the Tower of London in 1554.
