Thomas Wolsey, Lord High Chancellor of England and Henry VIII's right-hand man (until he was arrested for treason) died on 29th November 1530 on his way to face charges. He was buried at Leicester Abbey, which was demolished around 1538, and although the Abbey foundations have been excavated in recent years, Wolsey's remains have never been found.
