Edward VI: Known as the “Boy king” because he became king at nine. The government was in control of his uncle, Duke of Somerset. Unfortunately he didn’t do any ruling of his own because he died only 15.
Mary I: Had the queen that Edward VI chose (Lady Jane Grey), executed, tried to make England Catholic, and killed a lot more people.
James I: Was King of England AND Scotland because his mum, Queen of Scots, died and Elizabeth I died without an heir. So, along comes James I and VI and he survives the Gunpowder plot and introduced a new version of the Bible.
(Also his son Richard ruled for about a year but got kicked out of the country)
