The film is a dramatization of
Lady Jane Grey's brief reign as Queen of England. It opens with King Henry VIII on his deathbed stating the order of succession, and ends with Jane's beheading. It took some liberties with the history of the period, including a fictional Earl of Warwickplaying a similar role to John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberlandin real life. It was the second of three film versions of her life.
