spear-one territory


Isn't this term used to describe kings who had no fixed territory, but are kings of any territory they conquer, such as Alexander the Great? But somehow I cannot find one single result on Google by searching spear-one territory. Did I get the term wrong? Can any one confirm? Thanks!

I have never heard of the term, and tried many variations on the presented phrase, as well as the concept of a landless, mobile, or nomadic king. I was unsuccessful.

Sorry.

One is a number, while won is past tense for win.

So the correct term would be spear won

I can't believe I didn't see that. I am going back to bed.


Good catch, Attila006.
