Mary Queen of Scots Tomb Effigy 
By William and Cornelius Cure, 1612
Mary was initially buried in Peterborough Cathedral, after her execution by Elizabeth I. Her son, James I, had her body moved to a grand tomb in Westminster Abbey in 1612. A marble tomb was made for her in the Lady Chapel, part of which was a marble effigy. The effigy includes a crowned Scottish lion at her feet. In a twist of irony, the two queens who hated each other and who never met in life, are situated opposite each other in their graves in the Abbey.
