One of the stories associated with the death and the funeral of Henry VIII is that as his body lay at rest in Syon Abbey on the way to burial, the coffin leaked and dogs were found licking up the bodily juices from the king's body. Is it true? Well, this video explores that story, but also tells the real history of the king's death, his funeral, procession, and burial at Windsor, looking at his will and how he wished to be commemorated, and how much those wishes were fulfilled.
