16 February – The burial of King Henry VIII at St George’s Chapel, Windsor

St George's Chapel

On this day in Tudor history, 16th February 1547, King Henry VIII was laid to rest in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. He was buried with his third wife, Queen Jane Seymour.

In this video, I talk about his burial and what happened to the sarcophagus that he had planned to use. You can see that beautiful sarcophagus today, but it is the resting place of another famous historical person and is not at Windsor.
