The reason because he loved her the best. Bah he didn’t love anyone only himself, but he was buried with her because she was the only one of his Queen to give him a Son. Somewhere on the forum pages there is a picture of the inside of the Vault. Charles 1st I believe is buried in there too along with a child of Queen Anne’s 1702-1714..

He’s also buried with Charles I, and I’m pretty sure he didn’t love him!

So interesting that this great King was buried in a vault under the floor which he shared. No great tomb or monument. He didn’t fair any better than those he executed. Seems Catherine of Aragon bested them all.

Buried under the floor in a vault which he shares not only with Jane but with a Stuart king and a Stuart great grand baby. Kind of ironic since he dropped Margaret’s heirs from the succession.

There was supposed to be a huge memorial, but it wasn’t finished when Henry died and his Children never got round to finishing it during their reigns either. The parts that had been finished were broken up and sold off by the commonwealth after the civil war, the black sarcophagus at the centre of the design now forms part of Horatio Nelson’s tomb at St Paul’s

Actually COA tomb was only given it’s marble slab during the Victorian era before then I think it wa just a simple enough sort of tomb befitting someone of her rank in Henry’s eyes, she was the widow of his dead brother. AOC cleves tomb is even more obscure as she is buried under the altar in Westminster Abbey.

whatever his sin’s he’s one of the most famous monarch’s of all time, even down to his frowned upon daughter becoming one of the best rulers ever!

I think if they could give Richard III the child killer a decent funeral and monument then surely him, Jane Seymour and Charles I deserve a little better too than a marbel slab on the floor! :)

I think Charles was buried there as lets face it he’d not exactly had the most natural of ends had he and saved his remains being disturbed by burying him where folks wouldn’t think to look ;)

2 little bits of trivia for you. Mary Queen of Scots was originally, buried in Peterbrough Catherdral directly opposite K.O.A’s Tomb. That is until her son James moved her remains to Westminster Abbey to lie in what was originally Elizabeth’s tomb, Whilst Elizabeth was moved and buried on top of her sister Mary.
Maria de Salanas K.O.A favourite lady in waiting is alledgely buried with K.O.A. When K.O.A tomb was given a makeover by the Victorians, one of the workman was able to use a bit of wire and hooked out a fragment of black spanish style lace, there was a strong smell of spices on it but the lace soon fell into dust, however he said there was a hole in the coffin which was just large enough (I wouldn’t be surprized if he actually made a hole in it, The Victorians were facinated with the macabre and supernatural side of things) which he said he noticed within that the corpse had 2 left hands. I think it’s highly unlikely that there is any shred of truth in the story. It was probably invented to help attract the tourists to Peterbrough. After all as I said the Victorians like tales of mystery, horror and shocking tales of daring do and how better then to invent something like this. Gawd their lives must have been really boring.
