Lady Jane Grey - a Tudor Mystery by Eric Ives. | eBay
Ives never claimed to be writing a biography. Learn to read, people! With that being said, Ives has both successes and failures in this work. This compounded with his writing style can easily overwhelm some readers. Ives focuses on debunking myths and immersing in research by presenting full quotes, cross-referencing on dates, and exploring various theories which is perfect for Tudor lovers who seek this in-depth breakdown.
The issue with this is that Ives seemingly strays off the topic by large margins. However, this truly reveals the macro environment related to the accession of Jane Grey to the throne. Ives cunningly brings forth many theories previously unexplored. Therefore, the text can feel somewhat jumpy and disjointed.
Her side is simply not thoroughly explored. His intent appears to be to explore why and how Jane Grey gained the throne but the idea and conclusion are somewhat lost. The conclusion is notably strong with a look at depictions of Jane in art and media. Jul 15, Donna rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

He moves one by one through the main characters of the day, trying to justify their actions and how they were acting with only the best interests of crown and country when they pushed an ill, fifteen year old to write a will naming Jane as his heir.

The differences in religion between Edward and Mary was truly an important issue to be sure, but the circuitous route that leads Edward to choose Jane defies logic. There were other Protestant family members that were older and better able to rule, rather than a sixteen year old, sheltered girl, ruled by her parents and forced into marriage with one of the most powerful families of the time.
An entire branch of the family, the Stuarts, is dismissed out of hand as unable to inherit as well as Jane's mother, who was Henry VIII's niece. It is an earnest attempt to show a different perspective on a topic that is usually glossed over in history.
Books 2011: On Sale Today – Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery by Eric Ives (Paperback)
Jane was certainly a remarkable young woman if Ives is to be believed and England may have been a different place if she had ruled. His initial hypothesis based on the illegitimacy of Mary and Elizabeth is just too much to get past. They BOTH cannot have been illegitimate, despite the conflicting pronouncements of the day stating otherwise and were listed by their father as his heirs if Edward died childless.
A valiant effort, but it falls short with this historian. Aug 11, Gretchen rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction-to-read , tudor-nonfiction.

It should challenge most of what the reader learned in history class and hopefully encourage the reader to take a different view of events. I'm confused as to how some reviewers don't understand that Jane was the rightful heir according to Edward. According to Henry, Mary was next, this is true. However, given that upon their mothers losing their crowns, both girls were declared illegitimate, it makes sense.
ISBN 13: 9781405194136
Henry included Frances' children in the succession after his daughters, Edward excluded his half-sisters, it seems pretty straight-forward to me. That aside, I was a bit disappointed in this book. Jane is intriguing, perhaps more I'm confused as to how some reviewers don't understand that Jane was the rightful heir according to Edward. Jane is intriguing, perhaps more so because of how little we know about her. She's also intriguing because of how unimportant she is in the grand scheme of the history of the English monarchy, yet hundreds of years later we still are fascinated by her short life and unnecessary death.
But unfortunately the text itself was sluggish in places and that made it hard to continue. Easily could have been finished in a day or two, but just wasn't the quality I'd expect from Ives. Sadly, the book really isn't even about Jane, but the key figures surrounding her. Again, we just don't have a lot of information about her, but the title is quite misleading then in the regard.

I love the Tudor period and have read extensively about the era. Jane Grey is often overlooked as most people are interested in Henry and his 6 wives! I was disappointed with this book. I was expecting a biography of Jane Grey and it wasn't. Its well written but read like a dull history lesson Mar 30, Mariana rated it it was ok Shelves: reviewed , read-in-english , ebook , non-fiction , disappointing , tudors , england.
