Got some extra cash laying around? Maybe you'd like a 15th century battle flag...

A piece of the standard Henry Tudor flew at the Battle of Bosworth is to be auctioned off by Hanson Auctioneers in Derbyshire. They are expecting to get between 3000-5000 pounds for the flag fragment. According to this story, the fabric, which measures 6.5 x 5.5" was kept by Henry Tudor's standard bearer, Sir. Robert Harcourt, and passed down through his family. Henry Tudor defeated Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth, becoming Henry VII and beginning the Tudor Dynasty that would last for over 100 years.
