When he died, he was only 15, but even at this young age he was desperate to change the line of succession to the throne so that his sister (Mary I) wouldn't be Queen when he died. This was due to the fact that she was Catholic and he was Protestant. The children wrote about his attempts to change this on his deathbed.
