“I grew up in Europe, where the history comes from.” – Eddie Izzard

I am a big European history nerd, and I’ve learned that many of my customers are too. I’ve been thinking about trying to come up with some new designs for my History line, but for now I’ll just spotlight a few items I’m especially fond of.

One of my earliest European history designs was inspired by a viewing of the TV show The Tudors (not a great show by the way, especially if you’re a hardcore history and costuming geek like me). The Anne Boleyn patch ($8) depicts Anne’s iconic necklace dropping with blood, which foreshadows her unfortunate fate.

After the body of King Richard III was discovered under a car park, I came up with the Here Lyes Richard III – No Parkyng patch ($9) mostly as a joke. I didn’t think anyone else would appreciate the gag, but I soon discovered I wasn’t the only person who found it funny. This always got a good reaction at shows among history fans, and I sometimes receive e-mails from customers who discovered the patch and had to tell me how much they love it.

In 1485, Henry Tudor defeated King Richard III in battle, thus ending the War of the Roses. As King Henry VII, he married Elizabeth of York, and symbolically combined the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York into one sigil — the Tudor Rose. I love the design, which is why I’ve made it available as a patch ($9), on a scarf ($23), and on small messenger ($38), tablet ($53), and laptop bags ($58).

And remember, all three of these designs are available on a variety of products in my Redbubble shop!
