British royal family tree valued at up to $61,500

A calfskin document listing the lineage of the British royal family is to cross the block at Dominic Winter Auctions in Cirencester, UK with a £30,000-40,000 ($46,096-61,461) estimate.

The sale is due to take place on March 4. 

The lot dates to around 1500 and displays the Roger of St. Albans genealogy – which lists the various kings of England back to the era of Cassibellan and Hely in the first century BC.

The scrolls were issued in the reign of Henry VI, in part to remind the populace of the Tudors' divine right to rule during the turbulent Wars of the Roses.  

Chris Albury of Dominic Winter told the Western Daily Press, a local newspaper: "We understand that there are only 13 other of these Roger of St Albans rolls known.

"They are all in institutions so for a new one to turn up in the open market is a significant event. Each one is unique in some ways and this one is too.

"Though slightly imperfect at the end it does have King Richard III written in as a king rather than as Duke of Gloucester on all other rolls of this type."
