Book description

A significant retelling of the tale of Lady Jane Grey's journey through her trial and execution – recalling the dangerous plots and web of deadly intrigue in which she became involuntarily tangled, and which ultimately led to a catastrophic conclusion.

“Good people, I am come hither to die, and by a law I am condemned to the same.” These were the heartbreaking words of a 17-year-old girl, Lady Jane Grey, as she stood on the scaffold awaiting death on a cold February morning in 1554. Minutes later her head was struck from her body with a single stroke of a heavy axe.

Jane is known to history as “the Nine Days Queen”, though her reign lasted, in fact, for 13 days. The human and emotional aspects of her story have often been ignored, although she is remembered as one of the Tudor Era’s most tragic victims. While this is doubtlessly true, it is only part of the complex jigsaw of Jane’s story. She was a remarkable individual with a charismatic personality who earned the admiration and affection of many of those who knew her. All were impressed by her wit, passion, intelligence, and determined spirit. Furthermore, she is portrayed as a young religious radical who saw herself as an advocate of the reformed faith – Protestantism – and ultimately became a martyr for it.

Crown of Blood is an important retelling of Jane’s story, using a rich abundance of primary source material (some of which has never been published).
