Tewkesbury Abbey - Where Royal Bones Lies

Tewkesbury Abbey in Gloucestershire, England, overlooked the final battle of the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York to decide who would be king. These, of course, are now known to us as the Wars of the Roses (neatly coined by Shakespeare).

It became the burial place of two figures significant to the conflict, George, 1st Duke of Clarence and Prince Edward, Prince of Wales. From rival sides and now resting near to each other.

A quick 3-min watch to see where the remains of George, 1st Duke of Clarence and Prince Edward, Prince of Wales lie.
