Please forgive my morbid curiousity, but in the 500 years since the death of Queen Elizabeth I has her tomb ever been opened or the body examined ? I’d like to know how she was dressed , and if any jewells were burried with her ? Thank-you
Elizabeth I was buried at Westminster Abbey on the 28th April 1603 in the vault of her grandfather, King Henry VII. In 1606, King James I had her remains moved to a tomb in the Lady Chapel which she shares with her half-sister, Mary I. As far as I know, her tomb has not been opened since then and I do not know what her body was dressed in, I'm afraid.
