Crown of Blood: The Deadly Inheritance of Lady Jane Grey
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. Thus, Jane is remembered as one of history’s most tragic victims. Parts of this are irrefutably true, and there is no doubt that she was indeed a victim. But this is, in fact, only half the story. 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.
