Most people recognize her name, and many think that they know her story: Lady Jane Grey, a young girl who was cruelly abused by her parents, manipulated in the complex world of sixteenth-century politics, and executed at the age of seventeen.

Jane was a young woman of remarkable intellect, passion, determination, and courage. Nicola Tallis reveals the human and emotional story that has thus far been ignored, revealing a young woman who saw herself as an advocate of Protestantism, and ultimately became a martyr for her faith.
