  1. Justiciar

    In medieval England and Scotland the Chief Justiciar was roughly equivalent to a modern Prime Minister as the monarch's chief minister. Similar positions existed on the Continent, particularly in Norman Italy. The term is the English form of the medieval Latin justiciarius or justitiarius. A similar office was formed in Scotland, though there were usually two or three, the Justiciar of Scotia and Justiciar of Lothian, these offices later evolving into a national one called Lord Justice-General. Following the conquest of the Principality of Wales in the 13th century, the areas that became personal fiefs of the English monarchs were placed under the control of the Justiciar of North Wales and the Justiciar of South Wales.
