Which Royal do you feel the most sorry for?
The Royal I feel most sorry for Lady Jane Grey…or Queen Jane…For 9 days…
That’s right doggo…The Lady Jane Grey was only Queen for 9 days.
In June 1553, Edward VI wrote his will, nominating Jane and her male heirs as successors to the Crown, in part because his half-sister Mary was Roman Catholic, while Jane was a committed Protestant and would support the reformed Church of England, whose foundation Edward claimed to have laid. The will removed his half-sisters, Mary and Elizabeth, from the line of succession on account of their illegitimacy, subverting their claims under the Third Succession Act.
