Come and hear the story of Queen Jane for the first time at this exclusive event on 19 November 2016 for the launch of Crown of Blood: The Deadly Inheritance of Lady Jane Grey by Nicola Tallis! Most people recognize her name, and many think that they know her story: Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days Queen, a young girl who was cruelly abused by her parents, manipulated by the power players in the complex world of sixteenth-century politics, and executed. Thus, Jane is remembered ...as one of history’s most tragic victims.Parts of this are irrefutably true, and there is no doubt that she was indeed a victim. But this is only part of the story. Jane was a young woman of remarkable and celebrated intellect, passion, determination and courage. Historian and researcher, Nicola Tallis will discuss the human and emotional story that has thus far been ignored, revealing a young woman who saw herself as a champion of Protestantism, and ultimately became a martyr for her faith.
