Death of the King

Henry had always been in a health decline. He was so fat that the blood in his legs couldn't circulate, causing them to inflame and create sores. Those sores would burst open and become infected. In his last days the King went to shot stags and he came back with both legs inflamed, and a high fever. He called in barber-surgeons to cauterize the open wounds on his legs. None of it helped though. A few days later the King died, but know one desired to tell anyone. So the King lay rotting in his room, as everyone around him acted as if nothing had happened. When the King was buried they left open his coffin, and it is said that his remains exploded from decomposition and spilled out of the coffin.
