This title presents a thrilling historical adventure in the "Before They Were Famous" series, telling the story of the young Lady Jane Grey. "Lady Jane Grey: Queen for Sale" is the story of a Tudor girl doomed from birth by her royal blood. When Henry VIII dies Jane overhears that, inexplicably, in his will he has elevated her family in the event that his own children produce no heirs. Overnight the nine-year-old Jane has become a valuable pawn in the struggle for the throne of England. After being sold by her parents to Thomas Seymour, Jane is traded between powerful Tudor families as she grows older. As King Edward VI gets frailer, Jane's value rises. She falls into the hands of Warwick, a man who will do anything to get her on the throne. When he forces her to marry his son, Jane's fate is sealed. She must become queen or die. Fun and exciting adventure novels, part of a new series that looks at the often turbulent early lives of historical figures. The series continues with "William the Conqueror", "Julius Caesar" and "Pocahontas". The series is aimed at readers aged eight and above. It seeks to bring alive Ancient Egypt, Celtic Britain, Medieval Europe, Tudor England, and the New World, all periods most children cover in school. Did you know Lady Jane Grey reigned as Queen of England for only nine days? Find out more about this fascinating historical character in this compelling biographical adventure.
