"We're having a fund raising auction. Is there anything worth buying?" Ms. Truth asked.
Troy looked down his list. "Most items are overpriced or not worth buying. The items to buy would be a wig that King Henry wore, a letter from the Duke of Walishington to Queen Elizabeth I and an old English letter written by King George II."

Ms. Truth looked disgustedly at Troy and told him he was a fraud. How did she know?

Ok, it would be Queen Elizabeth I because it is Troy who is talking about the letter, and people in the present time refer to her as Queen Elizabeth 1 to clarify which one they are talking about.

What's wrong with the wig then? And who's the Duke of Walashington?

That was a bit hard, you have to just assume (w/o research and w/o bing a total know-it-all) that the guy got his facts wrong.
