    After reading Beth von Staats article on King Edward VI and his “My divise of the succession,” I am profoundly impressed by the young King’s grasp of the succession
    issue. I never knew that he went to such great lengths for the Protestant cause. Somehow, I always felt his decision on the succession was done at his death bed, as a last minute attempt or perhaps coerced by the Duke of Northumberland. To read that he wrote this before he knew he was dying, solidifies even further, in my mind, that Mary was the usurper of Jane’s throne.
