The Dowager queen died at Bermondsey Abbey where she had withdrew.The queens coffin was taken very 'quietly' to Windsor by boat accompanied by 2 ladies and a Prior.
The Queens simple and austere funeral was presided over by the Bishop of Rochester at St Georges chapel Windsor.

June 11th 1560 : Death of Marie de Guise ,Queen Regent of Scotland.

Marie was the widow of James V and mother of Mary,Queen of Scots who she was ruling Scotland as Regent.
The Queen died at Edinburgh Castle and had been ill for sometime,her coffin was taken to St Margaret's Chapel in Edinburgh Castle.In March 1561 the queen's coffin was transported back to France and was buried at l'Abbaye Saint-Pierre-les-Dames in Reims where her sister Renée de Lorraine was Abbess.The tomb of Marie de Guise was destroyed in 1794 and the abbey and church pulled down.
Sadly nothing has survived.

No it seems not nor did any of her surviving children bar her son Thomas, Marques of Dorset, his half-sisters Anne, Catherine and Bridget and Sir Edmund de la Pole,Duke of Suffolk.


Henry VII spent as little as possible on the funeral of Elizabeth Woodville and from the records was far beneath her rank as a queen dowager.

Sounds like Henry VII. As I recall, he was something of a miser. I know I’ve read about Catherine of Aragon being poorly taken care of after Arthur died and before Henry married her.

Apparently he only provided funds for 4 torches and no candles for around the queen dowagers coffin.
One witness called it a miserable affair and not fit for the rank of a queen.

Perhaps Elizabeth died in debt?

Elizabeth had no property: Henry had confiscated it all when she was sent to the nunnery after the Lambert Simnel uprising.

When Edward IV's tomb was opened in the 19th century it was discovered that Elizabeth had been buried in a wooden coffin of such poor construction that it had completely disintegrated, leaving her bones strewn around. Normally, at that time remains of royalty were sealed in a lead coffin that was then placed inside a wooden one or a marble tomb. Henry hadn't bothered.

So you'd think the old meanie would have paid for a decent burial at the least.. but he was notoriiously frugal. So was Elizabeth I

Henry VII also only paid her a miserable pension too of just 400 marks per year it was 700 during the reign of Richard III.

The funeral of Henry VII's mother Lady Margaret was a far more lavish affair and no expense was spared.

Margaret Beaufort died during the reign of her grandson Henry VIII, who did not inherit his father's frugality.

Lol Henry VIII certainly didn’t!

Both men went to the extremes in terms of finances.

I'm aware of that and also Lady Margaret was very well off at the time of her death unlike Elizabeth Woodville who was buried like a poor relation.

Thank goodness Henry VIII wasn't as frugal as Henry VII.

Henriette Marie of France and Navarre was never crowned queen and did attend her husbands Coronation in February 1626 and watched from behind a screen.

The queen had a Scottish Roman Catholic priest as her confessor Robert Phillip who accompanied the queen into exile. Fr Robert had come to the queen's household via the offices of Cardinal Pierre de Bérulle who had been chaplain to Henri IV.

The duke of Bedford along with being a royal prince also acted as Regent for her nephew Henry VI.
His political marriage to Anne de Bourgogne was childless and following her death in 1432 he married secondly Jacquetta de Luxembourg.
