Henry VIII died at around 2am on 28th January 1547 he was buried in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on 15th February.
Henry VIII is one of the many ghosts who haunt Windsor Castle. Ghostly groans and the sound of someone dragging their leg whilst walking have been attributed to Henry who spent his later years in agony due to an ulcerated leg.
Henry VIII's coffin (centre) is pictured above in an 1888 sketch by Alfred Young Nutt, Surveyor to the Dean and Canons, Windsor Castle. Henry's coffin was damaged and Nutt recorded that some bodily remains were visible.
