Guilford Dudley (1536 - 12 Feb 1554)
Guilford was the son of John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland. Power-hungry and eager to sustain the cause of the Protestants, his father locked him into an unlucky marriage with Jane Grey, the nine days queen. Mary I imprisoned the young couple in the Tower and had them beheaded on the same day. Northumberland was arrested and beheaded after his army was defeated.
Ironically, Guilford's brother, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester became Queen Elizabeth I's favorite.
