Ban

 

medieval legal term (in Western Europe) signifying, in particular, the right of the head of government to exercise supreme power, such as judicial (as in judicial ban), military (to raise troops and command them, known as military ban), or administrative power in a fortified place (burg ban). In the early Middle Ages, the ban belonged to the king and to responsible state officials; in the period of feudal disintegration, it was transferred to various feudal lords. In Germany, from the tenth century, the creation of so-called regional bans (territory over which one or another ruler held judicial and administrative power) was one of the manifestations of the trend toward formation of territorial principalities.
