Personally, I think he should be buried in Westminster Abbey, especially since his wife is also buried there.
We''ll have to wait and see if the remains are those of Richard III,his wife Ane Neville has no tomb at Westminster,it wasn't until 1960 that her burial had a plaque erected in her memory.

This has been such an enthralling story. I'm so fascinated that Richard III's descendants exist today in addition to finally discovering what could be the body of the last Plantagenet king. Personally, I'd like to see both Richard (if tests prove that it is indeed he) and Anne Neville buried in York Minster, since that city loved the king so much and was a major stronghold for him.

That's easy for you to say, but I bet she's wasn't Stephen's personal all time favourite Plantagenets.

It is a very interesting article. I'm going to have to find a few books on the Plantagenets--after I read about Richard III.

Yes, the Empress was bound and determined to fight for her rights and certainly gave Stephen a lot of sleepless nights (and he returned the favor!). If she couldn't keep the throne for herself, at least she was resolved that her son Henry would rule after Stephen. From what I've read, she and her DIL Eleanor of Aquitaine got along quite well.

Ha,ha indeed

Matilda is one royal lady (among many) whom I'd really like to know and read more on.
The Plantagenets are my favourite English Royal dynasty.

I definitely agree; this long-lived dynasty was packed with scandals, intrigue and some very strong royal women!

^^^And with a big "R" to mark the spot! Talk about subtlety.....

Look at what Geoffry d'Anjou started by sticking a sprig of planta genista in his hatband all those centuries ago.....

Danse Macabre’ Around the Tomb and Bones of Margaret of York

Makes me wonder what happened to her tomb,was it destroyed during the Reformation or during the French Occupation following the Revolution.
