25. I am…

Why father? Oh why?
If you had done nothing, then maybe she would have let me live.
But you threatened her power and now she wants me dead.
She is the queen there is nothing that can be done now, but wait.
I am, the nine-day Queen, Lady Jane Grey

Jane Grey (1537-1554)

the great granddaughter of Henry VII and was named Edward VI’s heir although it was never ratified and Mary and her supports claimed the throne. She and her husband Gilford Dudley were put in the Tower, but executed the next year for her fathers involvement in the Wyatt;s rebellion.
