British Railways carriage print showing Lady Jane Grey reading with Roger Ascham in the library of Bradgate House, Leicester. Lady Jane Grey (1537-1554) was the daughter of Henry Grey, Marquess of Dorset, and great grand-daughter of Henry VII (1457-1509). In 1553 she was forced to marry Lord Guildford Dudley by the Duke of Northumberland, who wanted to ensure the succession after Edward VI's (1537-1553) death. She was Queen of England for only nine days, before being superceded by Mary Tudor (1516-1558) who had popular support. Jane was imprisoned in the Tower of London and later beheaded on Tower Hill on 12 February 1554.
