LADY JANE GREY - MANIPULATED OR GULLIBLE?

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS AS IT WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I HAVE ALWAYS FELT SHE WAS MANIPULATED BY HER PARENTS BUT UNFORTUNATELY SHE GREW INTO THE PART OF QUEEN. I COULDN'T HELP BUT FEEL SORRY FOR HER IN THIS DRAMATISATION AS IT BROUGHT TO LIFE WHAT WAS A VERY SAD STORY.

UTTER FANATIC LUNACY

Religious lunacy killed a young innocent fanatic who believed she was chosen. A psychiatrist is what that Lady needed.
