About Catherine de Valois, Queen consort of England

Catherine of France (27 October 1401 – 3 January 1437[1]) was the Queen consort of England from 1420 until 1422.

She was the daughter of King Charles VI of France, wife of Henry V of Monmouth, King of England,[2] mother of Henry VI, King of England and King of France, and through her secret marriage with Owen Tudor, the grandmother of King Henry VII of England.[3]

Born at the Hôtel de St Pol, Paris, and died at the Abbey of St Saviour or Bermondsey Abbey, London, Catherine was buried at Westminster Abbey, and during the reign of Henry VII her coffin lid was accidentally raised, revealing her corpse, which for generations became a tourist attraction; Catherine's remains were not properly re-interred until the reign of Queen Victoria. -------------------- I see from a Merged file that the mother of Catherine of Valois and Wife of Charles VI of France is Lady Wittelsbach? not the Medi family as I had down, so that connection must be one generation further back to the Mother of Charles VI of Valois.
