"Tudor Rose" (US title "Nine Days a Queen") is a 1936 British film starring Cedric Hardwicke and Nova Pilbeam and directed by Robert Stevenson.

The film is a dramatization of Lady Jane Grey's brief reign as Queen of England. It opens with King Henry VIII on his deathbed stating the order of succession, and ends with Jane's beheading. It took some liberties with the history of the period, including a fictional Earl of Warwick playing a similar role to John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberland in real life. It was the second of three film versions of her life.

What appears to be a truncated version of this film, lasting around 30 minutes, is currently available on Youtube, in three parts ( [http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=R711hKXCZ_M see first part] ).
