Edward VI of England
Edward VI of England (12 October 1537 – 6 July 1553) was King of England and Ireland, from 28 January 1547, until his death. He was the third Tudor monarch. He did much to reform the Protestant Church of England.
His half-sisters were Mary I and Elizabeth I. Before he died, he named Protestant Lady Jane Grey to the throne in an attempt to keep his Catholic half-sister Mary from returning the country to Catholicism. Grey however was only marginally related to the Tudors. She was deposed and executed within days of her coronation by Mary I.
