Lady Jane Grey was born October 1537 in Bradgate, England. When Edward died on July 6, 1553 she was proclaimed queen. She was the titular queen of England for nine days in 1553. She reluctantly allowed herself at age 15 to be put on the throne by unscrupulous politicians; her subsequent execution Edward VI's sister, Mary Tudor, on Feb. 12, 1554 aroused universal sympathy.
