- Cultural depictions of Edward VI of England
Edward VI of England has been depicted in popular culture a number of times.
Edward VI is a central character in Mark Twain's novel The Prince and the Pauper, in which the young prince and a pauper boy named Tom Canty, who bears a strikingly uncanny resemblance to Edward, deliberately exchange places. This ultimately leads to the eventual alarm and discomfort of both. Ultimately, both are saved by a semi-impoverished nobleman named Sir Miles Hendon.
In the young adult novel "Timeless Love" by Judith O'Brien, the main character, Samantha, goes back in time and finds herself with Edward VI. Other historical characters in the book include Lady Jane Grey, the Duke of Northumberland, "Princess" Elizabeth I and Barnaby Fitzpatrick.
