|1307||07 JUL: Edward I dies at Burgh-by-Sands, Cumberland.
(Royal Tombs of Medieval England) Edward I died at Burgh-on-Sands in Cumbria on 7 July 1307 while on campaign to Scotland. It was not until 28 August that Edward II instructed the English prelates to attend him in Northampton to discuss arrangements for his father's burial and his own coronation. The kings body lay in state in Waltham Abbey, the burial place of another king, Harold II, before entering London. During the funeral procession between Holy Trinity, Aldgate, and Westminster the coffin was preceded by knights wearing the king's armor. The coffin rested at St. Paul's and the Franciscan Church before arriving at Westminster on 27 October. The following day Edward was interred in the Confessor's Chapel to the west of the monument which he had commissioned for his father, Henry III, the exequies presided over by the bishops of Durham, Winchester and Lincoln. The funeral was unrecorded, apart from a distribution of 100 marks to the poor. It was later claimed that Edward's heart, like that of his father, was taken to the Angevin mausoleum at Fontevrault, near Chinon in Anjou, France. Edward's tomb was probably commissioned by his son, Edward II, or his second wife, Margaret of France, although it may have been instructed by Edward himself, who was sixty-seven years old when he died. Edward's tomb is a plain, Purbeck sarcophagus measuring 9ft 7in by 3ft 7in formed by five slabs joined without mortar, with a Purbeck plinth. There is no effigy or tomb-chest decoration, and none was recorded. Traces survive of the epitaph painted on the north side of the tomb during 1556-59 referring to Edward simply as the 'Hammer of the Scots': Edwardus Primus Scotorum Malleus. Pacum Serva 1308. In 1774 Edward's tomb was opened revealing a Purbeck coffin 6ft 7in long, resting on rubble with a detailed description of his undisturbed appearance recorded including noting that his face had distinctive marks thought to be battle scars.

His Y DNA hg is G2, it is thought that he or an ancestor was an NPE.
Very possible, since stability of the kingdom required a male heir, and royal impotence was often concealed..
And other reasons as well.
