Therefore, due to a lack of security, the king gave away large tracts of land to other aristocrats (maior domus) if they would pledge their loyalty to the king. This agreement between the king and the maior domus created a semi-democratic arrangement between them. The agreement was to secure the king’s legacy and the kingdom’s borders.
