A pair of underpants that once belonged to Queen Victoria has sold for over $15,000.

The silk undergarment, which once belonged to the Forbes family along with many other royal artifacts, sold for £9,735 -- or about $15,000 -- along with other items, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

The undergarment pulled in more than three times what they were estimated to be worth.
