Lady Jane Grey Removed From The Throne Of England

468 years ago today, the Lady Jane Grey (and technically England’s first Queen) was removed from the Throne. Lady Jane Grey was appointed the ruler of England but her accession to the throne lasted only a mere nine days.

The execution of the sentence was suspended, but the participation of her father, in early February 1554, in Sir Thomas Wyatt’s rebellion sealed her fate. She and her husband were beheaded on February 12, 1554; her father was executed 11 days later.

If it hadn’t been for her father, the Lady Jane would have more than likely been released, or at the very least kept in “jail” or would have been transferred to a smaller castle or home to be watched. Either way, she more than likely would have lived. #DeadbeatDads.

Out of all the Royals in History, personally, I feel sorry for Lady Jane the most. A lot, if not all, happened to her, because of OTHER people. She was executed because of her father and brother, not because she actually did anything wrong. Let’s be honest, I don’t think she was ever brought up to be Queen. And it’s not like she would have had a choice to say “No”. I mean, some men today still think “No” means “Yes, please”. At the same time we know so little about her, even though she was technically she was the first Queen of England (and the others, haha). If Mary hadn’t of won (which the Lady Jane was again, not aware of anything. She was trusting her advisers) Lady Jane Grey would have been the first Queen of England (and the others, haha) for a long time.

She was only 16 when she was executed.

  1. A very sad story with a sad ending.
    Yes.
    One can say lady Jane was the first queen of England.

    All know about Bloody Mary.
    Why Mary was so particular to behead this innocent Jane though she was in a commanding position?

    History is alway complex and power corrupts the mind absolutely

    Love the way you put your points

    Thank you
