: The ''witan'' was the council of lords, bishops, and other such elders which elected and advised the king during the late Anglo-Saxon period in England.  (Succession at the time was not strictly patrilineal, though the dead king's son was often chosen.)  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 16:57, May 5, 2006 (CDT)
