This is toy soldier set Lady Gray and the Executioner.

Lady Jane Grey was the grand-niece of Henry VIII of England and cousin to his son, the short-lived Edward VI.

After the latter's death she was proclaimed queen, being given precedence over Henry's daughters, Mary Tudor and Elizabeth. Two weeks after the death of her brother, Mary, who had the support of the English people, claimed the throne, which Jane relinquished, having reigned for only nine days.

Jane, her husband Lord Guilford Dudley, and her father, were imprisoned in the Tower of London on charges of high treason. Jane's trial was conducted in November, but the death penalty handed to her was temporarily suspended.

In February 1554, Jane's father, who had been released, was one of the rebel leaders in Wyatt's rebellion, and on February 12, Mary had Jane, and then aged 16, and her husband beheaded. Her father followed two days later.
