Medieval Festival Talk - Nicola Tallis 'Crown of Blood: The Deadly Inheritance of Lady Jane Grey'

‘Good people, I am come hither to die, and by a law I am condemned to the same’

These were the words uttered by the seventeen-year-old Lady Jane Grey as she stood on the scaffold awaiting death on a cold February morning in 1554. Forced onto the throne by the great power players at court, Queen. Jane reigned for just thirteen tumultuous days before being imprisoned in the Tower, condemned for high treason and executed

In this dramatic retelling of an often misread tale, historian and researcher Nicola Tallis explores a range of evidence that has never before been used in a biography to sweep away the many myths and reveal the moving, human story of an extraordinarily intelligent, independent and courageous young woman.
