Best Answer

Anglo-Saxon oath one swears before their fellow villagers and warriors

before heading off to war:

"I swear before this company that I shall fight to the death for my King.

If my King or my Lord shall die, I shall take his place and fight as he would

have fought. If any man here see me taken with weak heart and run away

he shall remind me of this pledge made here before my kin."

There were probably many variations on this oath but it basically served

the same purpose of making sure that if a man didn't fulfill it at least his

village (and anyone near it) would never give him peace for doing so.
