Well, I can think of a million bad things to happen at a funeral, but this certainly takes the cake. King Henry VIII exploded in his coffin at his own funeral. Disgusting if I may say so myself, and hardly befitting a monarch. But it’s what happened after Henry VIII exploded in his coffin that really makes this one of the more disgusting things that we have ever come across.
King Henry VIII is a man who hardly needs an introduction. He is well known as being the over weight king of England who developed a habit of divorcing many wives, most often at the edge of an axe. Ruling England at the end of the 16th century, he had very little patience for women in particular. Especially those who he was married to and failed to deliver him a male heir. But if it weren’t for his terrible treatment of women, the English Reformation may have never taken place, and England could still be a Catholic country today. After all, the only way he could divorce his many wives was by creating his own church. Take that over priced fancy lawyers.
