The emperor's body is taken from his grave and buried in unconsecrated ground in a still unconsecrated chapel outside the city in Cornelio monte sita . A little later, Heinrich V disregarded the decision of the princes, had the body removed from the ground again on August 24th and first transferred to Liège, then to Speyer , to be buried there in the Mariendom.
