Guildford Dudley was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.


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[1]. Northumberland was arrested and beheaded after his army was defeated.[2]

Ironically, Guilford's brother, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester became Queen Elizabeth I's favorite.[2]
