|Caption:||Gilbert Marshal Earl of Pembroke (d.1241). One of ten knightly memorials in the round nave of the Temple Church, London. These were believed to be tombs until the post-WWII restoration revealed no bodies, but only effigy memorials. All the knights are on their back, but are otherwise positioned in different ways: some have their legs extended straight out while others have their legs crossed; some wear tunics over their armor and others wear full-length robes; some clutch their swords, some pray, and some have their arms straight at their sides. One has no effigy at all, but only a trapezoidal sarcophagus lid.|
