Description: Elizabeth I's rivalry with her Catholic cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots, is well known. But for her first ten years as queen, she feared her Protestant rivals and cousins still more. The story of the Nine Days Queen, Lady Jane Grey, and her forgotten sisters, the true heirs of Queen Elizabeth, reveal a queen very different from the Elizabeth of legend.
"Leanda de Lisle brings the story of nine days' queen, Lady Jane Grey and her forgotten sisters, the rivals of Elizabeth I, to vivid life in her fascinating biography." – Philippa Gregory.
Leanda is the author of Tudor: The Family Story The Sisters Who Would be Queen and After Elizabeth. She has also contributed to "Tudor Life" magazine.
