1. Crypt of the three skulls
If you have ever visited Paris, you have likely noticed a crypt located in the Paris Catacombs. Tourists are sometimes permitted to enter this site and by doing so, they help scientists to further their research on human remains.
In this particular crypt, there is a single skull that is removed from its rest of the skeletal remains and placed inside an enclosed glass case. This skull belongs to a woman named Lady de Sourdis who led a pious life and was once Archdeacon of Paris. She took it upon herself to find homeless shelter for disabled people and those suffering from leprosy.
In 1671, she died at the age of 38 while doing her work in poorhouses in Paris. Her body was buried in the church at which she worked and her skull was placed inside the crypt, which is only accessible to scientists.
However, upon opening the crypt to move the skull for research purposes it was found that a withered rose had been placed upon her forehead. The heart of this woman who died over 300 years ago is preserved and it is on display at Notre Dame.
2. Tomb of the Capuchin monks
In 1878, a 13-year-old boy named Randolph Frederick Marvin was vacationing with his family while they were living in Italy. It was during this time that he became ill and he passed away unexpectedly.
Following his death, his family moved to the country of Naples in order to bury him. When they arrived there, they were both surprised and angered to find that someone else had been buried there first and it was believed that the wrong body had been placed inside this tomb. Rather than moving Randolph’s body away from the site, they left him where he was buried.
His body was interred upon a small plot of land that was situated in a cemetery within the city of Naples. It would be the next year when his father noticed many strange things happening to their deceased son’s body.
3. The German grave
In 1933, a woman named Edith Frank was on vacation with her family. Her parents had decided to bury their daughter alone in a cemetery in Vienna since they could no longer afford to take care of her. The family left her body undisturbed and she rested there for the next decade until the Nazi government became involved with their Jewish citizens.
During their time in power, they would move many of them away so that they would have less competition with them. When Winston Churchill came to power, he began his campaign of deportation of all European Jewry by offering freedom to those who were willing to leave. The Frank family disagreed with the decision and decided to leave Vienna and flee to Czechoslovakia.
For the next six years, they remained in hiding even though their health began to decline. Finally, they were captured by the Nazi SS who took them across concentration camps and finally, they were incarcerated at Auschwitz concentration camp.
4. The Château de Chambord
In 1684, Jean-Baptiste Colbert was sent by King Louis XIV to France’s South Province of Saumur in order to observe how Louis’s military organization was functioning there. While he was doing so, he became ill and passed away shortly after returning home.
His body was buried in a crypt located within the church of Saint-Hilaire which was located within the grounds of the Chateau de Chambord. Many believe that there were two bodies found to be buried inside this crypt, however, that has not been confirmed.
