This month is all about one person: Lady Jane Grey of course! I’m putting the finishing touches to my new biography, Crown of Blood: The Deadly Inheritance of Lady Jane Grey, and I’ve been very busy following up some last minute leads. November was a momentous month for Jane, as on 13 November 1553 she stood trial for treason alongside her husband at Guildhall. You’ll be able to read all about it in my book! I was very excited when my copy of Nicholas Rowe’s play, Lady Jane Grey: A Tragedy in Five Acts arrived. Representations of Jane in the centuries following her death could form a book in their own right, and are utterly fascinating. She’s certainly a popular figure.
