The Abbey Church is also the necropolis of the Plantaganets. There are 3 recumbent statues in Tuffeau, Henry II, his wife Aliénor d'Aquitaine and their son Richard the Lionheart brother of John Lackland, all of which date back to the beginning of the 13th century except that of a smaller wooden statue of Isabelle d'Angoulème, the wife of John Lackland sculpted at the end of the 13th century
