The Execution of Lady Jane Grey

From Justin Taylor, yesterday:

Lady Jane Grey (1536/7-1554) is a daughter of the Reformation whose story of faithfulness and grace deserves to be better known.

To explain why this 18-year-old girl was beheaded after a 9-day reign as Queen of England, we first have to offer an all-too-brief primer on the political background of Tudor England up to this point.

Read the rest at The Execution of Lady Jane Grey: 460 Years Ago Today.

In addition to the resources Justin Taylor provides, I first heard her story told in an mp3 message by Rick Holland.
