- Hail Rutgur and Ingemar,
There is also the 'drauhtin' or 'war-lord'. I'm not sure what exactly the
function was on the battle field, but I do that the word came down into Old
Norse as 'drótt' meaning the 'warrior-band', and 'dróttinn' as war-lord, and
eventually as 'Lord'or'God' in a Christian sense.
