Lady Jane Grey (c1536 - 1554 (18)) was also, for a few days in July 1553, protestant Queen of England (between Edward VI and Mary).  Mary the catholic managed to get the gig in the end, thus extending the death throes of Roman Catholicism in England.  The sad and manipulated Jane, described by Alison Weir as one of "the finest female minds of the century", was executed in 1554 by Mary "for high treason", after a revolt against Mary provoked by her imminent marriage to the future King Philip II of Spain (a revolt which Jane herself had nothing to do with, though her dad took part and was also executed).
