Lady Frances Brandon, Duchess of Suffolk by marasop Lady Frances Brandon, Duchess of Suffolk by marasop
She was the second child and eldest daughter of King Henry VIII's sister Mary and Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk, and the mother of Lady Jane Grey, in whose favour she renounced her claim to the English crown.

Frances was very close to her aunt Catherine of Aragon, first wife of her uncle King Henry VIII, and a childhood friend of her first cousin, the future Queen Mary I. She received permission from the King to marry Henry Grey, Marquess of Dorset, in 1533, with whom she had five children, of which only the three youngest daughters survived childhood. The oldest of the three was the future Nine Day's Queen, Jane Grey.

c. 1560
