The queen died from a fall from her horse.

The locals in Cullen where she died took great care, including removing her organs before enbalment, to make sure her body made it south okay. In thanks Robert created a chaplaincy at the old kirk in Cullen, to pray for his wife. The money continued until 1975 (supplemented by future rulers including Mary). In 2011 it was restored, and prayers are still said on Sunday to her.

There are rumors her organs never went south but are buried there instead.

The queen was interred at Dunfermline Abbey in Scotland and her tomb was preserved there until 1560 when the abbey was ransacked by Calvinists,in 1917 her coffin was discovered during excavations and was reburied along side those of her husband Robert the Bruce which also had been discovered in 1818.

Probably the least known of all English/British male consorts.

Prince George was also a first cousin of his wife's successor, King George I.

His brother King Christian V of Denmark was an ancestor of Queen Alexandra (wife of Edward VII) and of course all subsequent British monarchs.

Christian V was also an ancestor of Prince Philip (husband of Elizabeth II). Philip descends as well from two of Prince George and King Christian's sisters: Frederika (wife of Duke Christian of Holstein-Gottorp) and Ulrika Eleonora (wife of King Carl XII of Sweden).

Halloween, not a good day for deaths in the BRF history:

Eleanor of England, Queen of Castille-daughter of Henry II died in 1212, 26 days after the death of her husband Alfono VIII of Castille. She was said to be so distraught over his death, that she had been unable to attend his funeral, falling and dying less then a month later.

Robert, 1st earl of Gloucester- died in 1147. He was a bastard son of Henry I. He was his half-sister Empress Mathilda's chief military aid. Robert was captured in the rout of Winchester. Mathilda released Stephen who she had in prison at the time, in return for her brother. By doing so she gave up her last chance at being queen and returned to France where she died.

Yes, on George of Denmark's mother's side. George's mother was Sophie Amalie of Brunswick-Luneberg. Sophie was the daughter of George, Duke of Brunswick-Luneberg. Sophie was the 5th of 8 children. Her youngest brother (7th child) Ernest Augustus was father to George I.

But George I married his first cousin. Sophia Dorothea of Celle was the daughter of Sophie Amalie and Ernest Augustus' older brother George William.

Robert of Caen,Earl of Gloucester is buried at St James' Priory, Bristol and remarkably his burial and tomb effigy have both survived.

These royal updates are really interesting. Thank you!

With regard to John, does anyone know why he was taken all the way to Worcester to be buried when Southwell Minster is so close to Newark? I had wondered about Lincoln Cathedral as well but I've subsequently found out that Lincoln was being rebuilt at the time of John's death so presumably would have resembled a building site. Peterborough Cathedral is also closer & presumably would have been easier to travel to from Newark in the early thirteenth century.
