King Henry IV and His Infamous Death Prediction
In the fifteenth century a psychic fortune-teller predicted that King Henry IV of England would die in Jerusalem. Silly psychic, King Henry never went on a crusade to the Holy Land.
However, many years later whilst visiting Westminster Abbey in London Henry collapsed. He was taken to the abbot’s house and presumably died of a stroke.
The name of the room in which the King passed away, the Jerusalem Chamber.
Another odd note on Henry IV is that he is not buried at Westminster Abbey, which is the usual final resting spot for English Monarchs. He is in Canterbury Cathedral. No other English kings are buried there.
