A bed bought online by an antiques dealer in Britain for just £2200 (US$ 2500) may actually be the only surviving example of royal furniture from the Tudor Era. It is believed that the ornately designed four-poster bed frame belonged to the founder of the Tudor Dynasty, King Henry VII and his queen, Elizabeth of York. Not all are convinced by the claims, but if they are true it would make the bed the most important piece of furniture in Britain.
