I believe that the line of succession of the children from Henry VIII's children was as follows:
Edward VI 1547-1553
Mary I 1553-1558
Elizabeth I 1558-1603
Edward VI was the younger half brother (it think by his third wife [Jane?]) of Mary and Elizabeth. When he died Mary, the daughter from his first marriage (to his brothers widow, Katherine of Spain) and eldest daughter, was declared queen. When she died Elizabeth, the daughter of his second wife (Ann Bolyn[sp?]).
