‘Good people, I am come hither to die, and by a law I am condemned to the same.’ These were the words uttered by seventeen-year-old Lady Jane Grey as she stood on the scaffold on a cold February morning in 1554. Forced onto the throne by power players at court, Queen Jane reigned for just thirteen days before being imprisoned in the Tower, condemned for high treason and executed. In this dramatic retelling of an often misread tale, historian Nicola Tallis explores evidence that has never before been used in a biography to sweep away the myths and reveal the moving story of an intelligent, independent and courageous young woman.
