Following the death of King Henry VIII (Frank Cellier) in 1547, his 9-year-old son, Edward VI (Desmond Tester), takes the throne -- but the real power lies with his adviser, the Earl of Warwick (Cedric Hardwicke). When Edward grows ill at age 15, the Earl convinces the dying king to name his cousin, Jane Gray (Nova Pilbeam), as his successor. The appointment is not accepted by the court, causing Edward's sister, Mary Tudor (Gwen Ffrangcon Davies), to lead a revolt against the reluctant queen.
