What is the King’s Ward?

Hi, I was watching Merlin, a TV series, and I noticed the King addressed Morgana as "The King's Ward". What position is this and does this mean Morgana is a concubine/mistress of the King or just someone who is in the king's inner circle?

Thanks,

  • The King's ward is a minor who is being brought up under the King's protection. In Britain children whose parents are dead, in prison or otherwise incapable may be deemed wards of court - in other words, they'll be put into foster care until they reach majority age.

  • Kings Ward

  • Define Ward

  • It means she is dependent upon him to make decisions for her.

    A Ward of the King (or the State, or any other person of power) is someone who has no rights for themselves...usually a child or a woman, who needs political/legal protection.

    Remember that in the Middle Ages, women couldn't own property in their own right...if she has no father, no husband, and no brother, then she bacame a "ward of the king".

    In modern times, if a child is left with no parents or relatives, he/she becomes a "ward of the state"...or an orphan. Sometimes a child is named as a ward of the state when taken into protective custody and placed in foster care.

    It's not a position.
