Great movie depicting the tragic life of Lady Jane grey. Though historical, it is more focused on the love story aspects. A conspiracy that pushes them to the throne only to be ousted and killed in the end.Loving each other to the very end. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Cary Elwes is the lead actor! :D

This very rare image of the ‘nine day Queen’ by Lucas de Heere was owned by Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough. Lady Jane is shown as a girl in her family home of Bradgate, in Leicestershire, before her ascension to the throne. Caught up in the scheming of various factions at court, the teenaged Lady Jane was used as a puppet to block the claims of the Catholic Mary Tudor. Ousted from the throne, Lady Jane was executed at the Tower of London in 1554.
