King Richard's tomb

According to a legend King Richard's remains were moved from original resting place to another when the monks of Leicester heard about King Henry VIII's intentions to clean all the monastaries from their gold and silver. And since he was Tudor his hate towards old Yorkist king was obvious, so the tomb was in danger.

The monks took Richard's bones and reburied them to a catacomb under the village. After they had trasported all of the bones they tossed some gold coins to the coffin showing their their respect towards the deceased and thanking him from his good deeds.
