Between The Nose And The Thumb.

One yard.
Henry I, King of England.

Where does the “yard” come from? This measurement unit is 900 years old. It was introduced into practice by Henry I, King of England (1068-1135), the youngest son of Wilhelm I The Conqueror or William the Bastard. And introduced it kingly. He ordered to use as measurement unit the distance between his nose and a thumb of his stretched hand.
