The undressed funeral effigy of Catherine of Valois, Queen of England. Henry V's queen died in 1437. The Tudors descend from Catherine of Valois and her second husband, the Welshman Owen Tudor. Her grandson King Henry VII made major alterations to Westminster Abbey, which involved moving her embalmed body. She was placed in a crude coffin constructed of flimsy boards, and was left above ground. Catherine remained a public spectacle in the Abbey for over 200 years.
