    Reinette: Valois Princesses

    Marie de Medici, Queen consort of France. Second wife of Henri IV of France.

    This very rare image of Lady Jane Grey (1537-1554), who is known as the ‘nine day Queen’ of England, was painted by Lucas de Heere. Lady Jane was quite a scholar and is shown as a girl in her family home of Bradgate, in Leicestershire, before her ascension to the throne. The 16/17 year old Lady Jane was used as a political puppet to block the claims to the throne of Mary Tudor. Ousted after only nine days as Queen, Lady Jane was executed as a usurper at the Tower of London in 1554.
