The last Tudor [sound recording]

Gregory, Philippa2017
Jane Grey was Queen of England for nine days. Using her position as cousin to the deceased king, her father and his conspirators put her on the throne ahead of the king's half-sister Mary, who quickly mustered an army, claimed her crown and locked Jane in the Tower. 'Learn you to die' is the advice that Jane gives in a letter to her younger sister Katherine. Her lineage makes her a threat to the insecure and infertile Queen Mary and, when Mary dies, to her sister Queen Elizabeth, who will never allow Katherine to marry and produce a potential royal heir before she does. So when Katherine's secret marriage is revealed by her pregnancy, she too must go to the Tower. 'Farewell, my sister', writes Katherine to the youngest Grey sister, Mary. After watching her sisters defy the queen, Mary is aware of her own perilous position as a possible heir to the throne.
