Lady Jane Grey is remembered as the "Nine Day Queen". Although she was never crowned, she was named as Queen in the will of her cousin, King Edward VI, and was officially proclaimed as such following Edward's death in 1553. She was quickly overthrown by Edward's half-sister, who became Queen Mary I.
Jane was executed following Wyatt's Rebellion in 1554. Today she is remembered for her short reign, and her level of education, which was high for a woman at the time.
