There is a plan of Old Leicester in the bottom left hand corner, and a short history of the county in the top left. Depicted are ten coats of arms, including those of the Earls of Leicester, such as Simon de Montfort, and the Royal coat of arms. On the map "Kinge Richard's Feild" (the site of the Battle of Bosworth) is marked, as well as Bradgate Park, where Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days Queen, was born.
