On the fourth day of Lady Jane’s reign, Jane was down with an illness. She herself believed the illness was caused by poison administered by The Duchess of Northumberland (her mother-in-law!), though there is no evidence for this. Stress and anxiety are more likely.
Mary’s army was gaining a following, and by now a full-scale rebellion was breaking out in her favour. She moved from Kenninghall to Framlingham in Suffolk. Mary was determined to succeed; she saw the hand of God working in her favour. She would no longer be in the background of her own story.
