Did they love each other?

In the movie they find love together, she changes him and so does he with her but are there any profs that they fell in love? I saw somewhere a wood in wich her name was carved, suposibly by Guildford. I'm a terrible romantic, but I'd like to know the truth...

So sorry to disappoint you but there was absolutely no love match between Lady Jane and Guildford Dudley. They were forced in to the marriage by Guildford's father, Duke of Northumberland because he wanted for Guildford to be made a Duke when Jane was Queen. Not much has been recorded of her life and I guess the film writer's wanted to put some romance into the story to give it more body.

Guildford's mother was also called Jane so some think it was written for her instead of Jane Grey but we will never know
