DUX BELLORUM: The Roman War Duke

The Dux Bellorum, or Roman War Duke, is a military appointment by the Imperator, as Rome's second-in-command. Typically this post will be held by Rome's senior Comes.

The War Duke must be addressed on the field as Duke or Lord. A War Duke must wear the cape of a Comes and a purple tunic.

Formerly, this was a rank with near impossible requirements. A Comes' entire Legion had to be composed exclusively of Centurions.

Right: As Rome's senior Comes, Duke Tobias Deloricus Desponius of Legion II holds this exalted rank.
