Earl of URLs

If you spot a broken link or an url that no longer exists, please let us know. Earls have existed since Old English was spoken. It is written eorl in Sweet’s Anglo-Saxon Primer where Davis gives it the translation of nobleman. Arla could be a possible female form of the word, but as the Anglo-Saxon noblewoman, Gytha Thorkelsdóttir left Exeter, William the Conqueror started using the titles count, and countess for his earls.
