If you like lording it over your friends, the opportunity has come up to make it official.

Paul Fosh will be auctioning the ancient historical title of The Lordship of the Manor of Botinton to the highest bidder.

Botinton is a derived name of the town Buttington, a village near Welshpool in Powys , dating back to 1245.

The fancy title is up for sale with a guide price of £2,200, and means if you are successful in attaining it, you'll be able to use it after your name from now on.

It can be used on all official documentation including your passport, driving licence and other legal documentation.

But that's where it starts and finishes.

Such titles give you no other special privileges and do not change your life in anyway, but offer an opportunity to buy a present for the person who has everything, or a treat for yourself to feel more regal when you're passing through security at the airport or showing off your driving licence to prove your age.

Auctions explained...

Paul Fosh Auctions valuer Sean Roper said: "We probably have about four or five a year coming through at auction. I believe they have been extradited from historical titles but they have no use other than the name.

"You can use them on business cards, and other official documentation.

"They are listed with us through private entry and we will have people who may have been from the area that the title originated from."

The listing of the lot can be found on the Paul Fosh Auctions website.
