Birth: Apr. 10, 1512
Death: Dec. 14, 1542

The coffins of James V, Magdalen, his first Queen, and his infant sons by his second marriage to Mary of Guise were placed in this vault after their original burial site was destroyed by the English Army in 1544. The tomb was damaged again in 1688 during riots near the end of James VII's reign. Queen Victoria ordered repairs to be made the vault in 1898 and all of the remains of those previously interred in the tomb were reburied in one coffin.

The vault also contains the coffin of Mary of Gueldres, Queen of James II which was moved from Trinity Church, Edinburgh, Scotland in 1848.
