To celebrate 20 years of my website, I am running a 9 Day Giveaway on key dates throughout the year that relate to Lady Jane.
7th September 1548 – Jane is chief mourner at the funeral of Dowager Queen Katherine Parr at Sudeley Castle
On day 8 of the giveaway you have a chance to win a paperback copy of, ‘Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery’ by Eirc Ives in a world-wide giveaway!
‘Lady Jane Grey, is one of the most elusive and tragic characters in English history.
In July 1553 the death of the childless Edward VI threw the Tudor dynasty into crisis. On Edward’s instructions his cousin Jane Grey was proclaimed queen, only to be ousted 13 days later by his illegitimate half sister Mary and later beheaded. In this radical reassessment, Eric Ives rejects traditional portraits of Jane both as hapless victim of political intrigue or Protestant martyr. Instead he presents her as an accomplished young woman with a fierce personal integrity. The result is a compelling dissection by a master historian and storyteller of one of history’s most shocking injustices.’
