Above Jane's grave, the following inscription read:
"Here lieth a Phoenix, by whose death
Another Phoenix life gave breath:
It is to be lamented much
The world at once ne'er knew two such."
The king wore black for the following three months, and did not marry for another three years, though tentative marriage negotiations began soon after Jane's death. He also gained quite a bit of weight during this depressing time, becoming the man we now know him to be - obese!
Perhaps the most notable feature of this burial is that Henry would later choose to be buried beside her - his "true wife." Though the grave today is less than impressive - more of a large black plaque on the floor of the chapel - the original funeral and burial of Jane was one to be admired (and mourned). Likewise, the fact that her royal husband would one day choose to eternally rest beside her (over his five other wives) is notable and charming - maybe one of the only charming decisions Henry VIII ever made!
