A Picture of Innocence: Lady Jane Grey and Her Sisters
Posted By Claire on May 11, 2010
Just a quick post to let those of you who are in London on Thursday know that one of my favourite historians, Leanda de Lisle, is giving a free lecture entitled “A Picture of Innocence: Lady Jane Grey and Her Sisters” at the National Portrait Gallery this Thursday (13th) at 1.15pm in the Ondaatje Wing Theatre.
In this talk, Leanda, author of “The Sisters Who Would be Queen”, will go behind the legend of the Nine Days Queen, Lady Jane Grey, revealing a history of religious propaganda, sadomasochism, sexual prejudice and forgotten tragedy. Please do make the effort to go if you’re near the NPG as it sounds like an excellent talk.
