The teulu was the name of a British war-band

SizeEdit

A British chieftain of the late fifth century could have had as few as five men, while it would not have been uncommon for a major king of the early seventh century to have one hundred.

FunctionEdit

The teulu was the personal household of the king, with direct emtional, economic, and political ties to their lord. As kingdoms grew and there were fewer of them, their unben, or sub-kings, would have supported their own teulus as well, thus increasing the effective military force of their king.
