Henry VIII's coffin. Sketch of the vault containing the coffins of Henry VIII, Charles I and Jane Seymour by Alfred Young Nutt, 1888. The coffin on the left is Charles I’s; in the middle, Henry VIII’s on the right, Jane Seymour’s. The vault is suited below a stone marking the site that is placed in the centre of the Quire in St George’s Chapel, Windsor. The vault was opened in 1813 with the Prince Regent (later George IV) present. A contemporary account describes the event.

In 1813, during the excavation work for a passageway leading to this vault, workmen accidentally uncovered the tombs of Kings Henry VIII and Charles I. The Prince Regent instructed the royal physician, Sir Henry Halford, to examine the tombs and conduct an autopsy on the body of Charles I.
