    Edward was not quite 15 when he died. His 15th birthday was until October, and he died in July.

      Hi Lorna, he was 15 when he died because he was born in October 1537 and died in July 1553. He would have turned 16 in the October. 🙂

    Yes You are right Claire. I must have been thinking of someone else. Terribly sad really as I personally think if given more of chance to prove himself, his reign might have panned out nicely.
