A comitat was the name for a Germanic war-band.


The Law of Ine stated that an army could consist of only eight men, while the personal band of some of the kings were as many as one hundred.


As well as being the personal army of a king, the comitat was composed of friends, comrades, people who had a personal bond with him because of the land, weapons, beer, and entertainment he provided.
