Tom Canty and Edward Tudor are born on the same day, but Tom is a beggar and Edward is a prince. They meet by chance and dress in each other's clothes as a joke. Soon the pauper finds himself living on the throne of England, while the prince finds himself living among the outcasts of society. Tom uses his new powers to challenge evil laws, while Edward learns many harsh lessons about how his poorest subjects live. Because of his experiences, Edward VI's short reign is one of justice and mercy.
