'I do believe there's every hope of finding King Henry I.'
Henry I: MP Rob Wilson thinks that the lost body of William the Conqueror's son could be buried in Reading Abbey.
Henry, born around 1068, was the fourth son of William the Conqueror and succeeded his brother William II to the English throne.
He centralised the administration of England and Normandy in the Royal Court and was believed to be the first Norman monarch to speak fluent English.
In 1120, the years before he founded Reading Abbey, his sons William and Richard both drowned when the White Ship sank in the English Channel, leaving just his daughter Matilda.
However, succession passed to his nephew Stephen when Henry died in 1135, allegedly from eating too many lampreys.
He died in Normandy and his body was sewn into a bull's hide and transported to Reading.
