Her life began with promise and high expectations but ended tragically, due in part to the ambitions of her father and the religious strife of the times. Unlike her predecessors, Seymour never underwent a coronation, thus was never officially crowned queen. Jane's guilt, of having treacherously assumed the title and the power of the monarch, was evidenced by a number of documents she had signed as "Jane the Quene".

    She seemed to be a little confused as to what she was expecting out of this relationship, but as usual Henry was in charge and she could just go along for the ride. Today, little is left of the loose and louche Tangier that Jane left behind. It is no wonder, perhaps, that she was so taken by the ascetic Simone Weil, another writer who had a terribly vexed relationship with the world, and who also suffered from a tragic sense of sin. Two hours later she would meet the same fate. As a wedding gift he made her a grant of manors in four counties as well as a number of forests and hunting chases for her jointure, the income to support her during their marriage.

Just then, she hears a mesmeric call from Rochester. Perhaps her youth and willingness to be of service to the ambitions of others for what she believed was the greater good is her most impressive legacy.
