At 10am on the 12th February 1554, Guildford Dudley was led out of the Tower of London and up onto Tower Hill where he was executed by beheading.
Guildford’s wife, Lady Jane Grey, watched from her window as she waited for her turn. As she was led out of the Tower to be taken to the scaffold within the Tower walls, she was met by a cart carrying the bloody remains of her husband. How awful! Jane was then also executed by beheading.
