Tomb of queen Eleanor.
The tomb of this queen is of Petworth marble, covered with a table of gilt copper, on which is the recumbent statue of the queen; this is also of copper, richly gilt. The attitude of the figure is very elegant, the left hand being brought over the breast to grasp a crucifix, which is dependant from her neck; the right hand formerly held a sceptre. Her robes are flowing, and are elegantly disposed, and on the head is a small coronet. Above is a singular canopy, having a rich border of crockets, and a finial.
Round the copper verge is the following inscription:--
On the sides of this monument are engraven the arms of Castile and Leon, quarterly, and those of Ponthieu, hanging on vines and oak trees. Though the body of this queen lies interred in this chapel, her heart was buried in the choir of the Friars Preachers, in London.
