Lady Jane Grey's great-grandfather was Henry VII of England. Her grandmother was the sister of King Henry VIII.

Tudor England has always fascinated me, but I became interested in Lady Jane Grey while doing research for my class on pirate history.

Students are invited to do additional reading about Lady Jane Grey after class and have the option of submitting a written report to me within two weeks of taking the class.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I may show paintings such as the one used for this class description in which hint at impending violence. We will be discussing Lady Jane Grey's death. There may be brief, non-explicit mention of people being tortured. There may be some discussion of King Henry VIII's marriages and the accusations of bigamy and incest that were made around his first two marriages.
