Lady Jane Grey, , a grandniece of Henry VIII of England, reigned as uncrowned Queen Regnant of the Kingdom of England and Kingdom of Ireland for nine days in July 1553. It is the shortest rule of England in its history, and England's first female monarch .

Jane's accession, pursuant to the will of Edward VI, breached the laws of England as under the Third Succession Act. Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's oldest daughter, was the legitimate and rightful heir to the Crown. Mary had been declared illegitimate by her father, and the same ruling had been applied to her younger half-sister, Elizabeth, later Elizabeth I. Their positions in the line of succession had however been restored by the Third Act of Succession.
