The Execution of Lady Jane Grey
The Execution of Lady Jane Grey is an 1833 painting by Paul Delaroche which was bequeathed to the National Gallery in London in 1902. It portrays, erroneously in some regards, the moments preceding the death of Lady Jane Grey, who served as de facto Queen of England for nine days in 1553 before relinquishing the throne to Mary Tudor; Queen Mary later charged Lady Jane Grey (among others) with high treason.Painting: Paul Delaroche
