Bayern's Own is the king of Bayern's personal hundred-band of warriors.
As a warlike country, Bayern requires each village to provide a hundred-band of men that may be called upon to fight in any war Bayern enters. This arrangement means that the members of a hundred-band know each other very well, as they all come from the same villages, and consequently any infiltrators will be noticed immediately. Bayern's Own is the king's personal hundred-band.
Usually, they are made up of younger men who have received their javelin and shield and older men who have never killed before. The javelin marks a boy as part of the community, but they aren't considered men until they've made their first kill. Some take it so seriously, they won't shave their beards until they've killed their first enemy. Experienced fighters are given the ability to command and mount a horse while the rest fight from the ground.
