about

The Nine Days‘ Queen shows that stories about wisdom and failure and being strong and going your way cannot only be found nowadays. It has this folky feel to it with medieval instruments and a small orchestra complementing the electronics.

Lady Jane Grey lived in the 16th century and became the Queen of England for nine days, before being dethroned again and later being behaded for not converting to the new Queens religion. Her tragic path was layed upon her more or less by her intriguing husband, but still she held her head up high and went it all the way, never giving in.

lyrics

young and bright walking in dark times
through England’s east midlands
walking tall in times of war
you had to marry this man
he wanted you to be the queen
and reign throughout the land

lady jane grey, born on a sunday, destined to fall prey
she was called the nine day’s queen
they called her the nine day’s queen

the king had died, your husband lied
and you had to take the throne
you were only fifteen and the righteous queen
came back to hold her own
the verdict was cruel, but then overruled
but your death was just postponed

lady jane grey, born on a sunday, destined to fall prey
she was called the nine day’s queen
they called her the nine day’s queen

you did not convert to her religion
the risk of you living was high
the rebellion was broken, the charges outspoken
the way to the scaffold so nigh
have mercy you said, the tears I’ve shed
you prayed with just a sigh

lady jane grey, born on a sunday, destined to fall prey
she was called the nine day’s queen
they called her the nine day’s queen
