Mercenary
A MERCENARY is a person who takes part in an armed conflict who is not a national or party to the conflict and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities by desire for private gain". Mercenaries fight for money or other recompense rather than for political interests. In the last century, and as reflected in the Geneva Convention , mercenaries have increasingly come to be seen as less entitled to protections by rules of war than non-mercenaries. However, whether or not a person is a mercenary may be a matter of degree, as financial and political interests may overlap

The Crown
THE CROWN is the state in all its aspects within the jurisprudence of the Commonwealth realms and their sub-divisions (such as Crown dependencies , provinces , or states). The term is a metonym for both the state and the reigning monarch. A corporation sole , the Crown is the legal embodiment of executive, legislative , and judicial governance in the monarchy of each country. These monarchies are united by the personal union of their monarch , but they are independent states. The concept of the Crown developed first in England as a separation of the literal crown and property of the nation state from the person and personal property of the monarch. It spread through English and later British colonisation and is now rooted in the legal lexicon of the United Kingdom, its Crown dependencies, and the other 15 independent realms. It is not to be confused with any physical crown, such as those of the British regalia
