One of Edward VIII’s wisdom teeth, which was expected to go for up to £10,000 at auction, has failed to sell.

The former king was made Duke of Windsor following his abdication in 1936 in order to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

The tooth was being sold by the grandson of the dentist who originally extracted it in 1940.

The lot also included an X-ray and dental card, dated 9 September 1940 and signed “Edward Wallis Windsor.”
