(Royal Ancestry) Elizabeth Tudor was born 2 July 1492, died at Eltham, Kent 14 Nov. 1495, and was buried at Westminster Abbey.

(Royal Tombs of Medieval England) The daughter of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, Elizabeth died at Eltham Palace on 14 September 1495, aged three years old. She was buried in the Confessor's Chapel on 26 September after a funeral with all the trappings of adult burial, including professional banners, a hearse and Cloth of Majesty. The account of the funeral records that the black hearse valence was bordered in red and white roses, with the words 'Jesus est Amor Meus' embroidered in gold. The principal mourner was Elizabeth's great-aunt, Elizabeth Plantagenet, Duchess of Suffolk. Elizabeth was buried beside the altar at the east end of the Confessor's shrine, and her tomb erected nearby. Her small Purbeck and black marble sarcophagus stands between the tombs of Henry III and Eleanor of Castile and has indentations for an effigy or brass, since lost.
