Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery
John Wiley & Sons, 19 Sep 2011 - 392 halaman
Lady Jane Grey is one of the most elusive and tragic characters in English history.
In July 1553 the death of the childless Edward VI threw the Tudor dynasty into crisis. On Edward's instructions his cousin Jane Grey was proclaimed queen, only to be ousted 13 days later by his illegitimate half sister Mary and later beheaded. In this radical reassessment, Eric Ives rejects traditional portraits of Jane both as hapless victim of political intrigue or Protestant martyr. Instead he presents her as an accomplished young woman with a fierce personal integrity. The result is a compelling dissection by a master historian and storyteller of one of history’s most shocking injustices.

A very good study of the events surrounding the death of Edward VI and the accession of Mary I. Very little of this book has to do with Lady Jane Grey. Read for the history it's good. Should perhaps be re-titled. Baca ulasan lengkap

This book was extremely dense with evidence and at times I almost felt lost in it enough to lose track of the main points. In spite of that, it was still excellent. The author brought the historical characters, setting and events to life. Baca ulasan lengkap
