Undressed funeral effigy of Catherine de Valois, Queen of England. Henry V's queen died in 1437. 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.

His first blow missed her neck altogether. The second struck her neck, but didn't cut through -- he had to saw through to finish the job.
