Jane Seymour's death scene from Showtime's "The Tudors". Jane Seymour was the third wife of King Henry VIII and she was Queen Consort of England (30 May 1536 - 24 October 1537). She died of childbed fever after giving birth to the future King Edward VI of England. She died on 24 October 1537 at Hampton Court. She was buried in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle after a funeral in which her stepdaughter, Lady Mary (later Queen Mary I), acted as chief mourner.
The following inscription was above her grave for a time:
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.
After her death, Henry wore black for the next three months and did not remarry for three years, although marriage negotiations were tentatively started soon after her death. She was Henry's favorite wife because, historians have speculated, she gave birth to a male heir. When he died in 1547, Henry was buried beside her.
