So you think life as a royal during the Renaissance was all glamor?  Think again.  Lady Jane Grey was born into royalty and was the granddaughter of Henry VII and the cousin to King Henry VIII's children.  Although Jane was fifth in line for the throne, she certainly never wanted to be queen.  Brought to court at age 9 to be a companion to Kind Henry VIII's sixth wife, Jane finds herself caught up in the court's politics.  Although Jane comes to an untimely death at age 16, this is the story of her life from the time she came to live with the royal family.
