Lady Jane Grey is known as the Nine Day Queen. As part of my alternate history series, I have a few in mind for this unfortunate young woman. Personally, I don’t see her as a traitor, and I don’t think she had much to do with the plot to put herself on the throne. I believe she was going along with Edward VI’s wishes, and it was her parents and in-laws who really pushed the matter.
Mary I deposed Lady Jane Grey on July 19, 1553. But what if that didn’t happen? What if Jane had the support of the English people and was officially crowned Queen of England? What if Edward’s last will and testament stood, meaning that she was the true named heir of the boy king?
Here are my thoughts of this alternate history.
