In July of 1553, Henry VIII’s only son, Edward VIII, died childless. In a desperate attempt to keep England in Protestant hands, he changed the line of succession to put Lady Jane Grey on the throne. Infamously known as the nine-day queen, Lady Jane has called upon her cabinet to ensure that her rule is consolidated. This committee will explore if Mary I’s ascension to the throne was truly inevitable, or if Grey’s privy council could do something more to ensure that she stays queen for days to come. Delegates will have to face issues include protests against Lady Grey’s rule as well as opposition within the government so that they may keep the rightful Queen as the head of England.
