Wedensday Royal Words...

Although it hath pleased God to hasten my death by you, by whom my life should rather have been lengthened, yet can I patiently take it, that I yield God more hearty thanks for shortening my woeful days.

Queen Jane ~ born Lady Jane Grey ~ Queen for nine days following the death of Edward VI in July 1553. She was executed by Queen Mary in February 1554. Jane the daughter of Henry Grey and Frances Brandon was the great niece of Henry VIII.

Suggested reading:
Innocent Traitor by Alison Weir

In the Shadow of Lady Jane by Edward Charles


  1. Deja vu! I had ordered "In The Shadow.." just this morning from Amazon.. the used ones are running cheap cheap cheap :)

  2. Good for you Marie. Have you read Innocent Traitor? That's the best!

  3. A very sad story.

    I'd never seen that portrait of her before.
