#91227. Asked by bcollums. (Jan 17 08 3:34 AM)
She was initially buried at Peterborough Cathedral in 1588, but her body was exhumed in 1612 when her son, King James I of England, ordered she be reinterred in Westminster Abbey. It remains there, along with at least 40 other descendants, in a chapel on the other side of the Abbey from the grave of her father's cousin Elizabeth I. In the 1800s her tomb and that of Elizabeth I were opened to try to ascertain where King James I was buried; he was ultimately found buried with Henry VII. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_I_of_Scotland#Trial_and_execution
