Other than Mary, Queen of Scots, there were two other brides put forth to be Edward VI's wife..

Thomas Seymour's scheme was to marry him to Lady Jane Grey, but he failed in his intentions to manipulate his nephew into marriage with the lady, even though Edward was fond of his cousin. Seymour certainly lead Jane's parents to believe that he could bring off the match, which was the main reason she was present in Catherine Parr's household at the same time as (Princess) Elizabeth.

Jane appeared to be receptive to the match as well, unlike her reaction at marriage with Guilford Dudley..

In 1551, Edward was betrothed to Elisabeth de Valois, daughter of Henri II and Queen Catherine de Medici of France. This betrothal was presumably in effect until Edward's death, but the actual marriage never took place. Elisabeth was then betrothed to Carlos, Prince of Asturias, son of Philip II of Spain.. but that marriage became untenable due to Carlos' mental illness.. so she became the third wife of Philip himself in 1559. She was 14 when she became Queen Consort of Spain.. her husband was 32 and twice widowed (his second wife being Queen Mary I of England).

Elisabeth de Valois died in childbirth at the age of twenty-three, and Philip II would marry his fourth wife in 1570.
