The Nine Day Queen.

be-headed queen collectible dolls, anyone?

An interview on Fashionista with the designers behind Lady Grey jewelry reminded me of my high school obsession with Lady Jane Grey. Lady Jane served as Queen of England and Ireland for nine days, as Henry VIII, he of the 6 wives, had declared his daughters, Mary and Elizabeth illegitimate. The bastards prevailed, and sweet Jane lost her head.
