[edit] Historical Background

In the Roman army, the Præfectus, was the rank of a senior military officer. It was a general term which can be analogized to mean 'commander', where the specific role varies from military unit to military unit. For example, the præfectus alae was the commander of the cavalry units of Rome, the præfectus classis was a fleet commander. The top rank in the Prætorian Guard was called the Præfectus (Prefect). In the Roman Legion, the Præfectus was 3rd in command, a position given only to men who spent 30 years in the army. Upon retirement from the army, they would be given the status of equestrians in Roman society (non-noble upper class, usually former career soldiers or nobles of prominent military families). Their role would be to organize the Legion, train it, and equip it, as well as oversee the construction of any military encampment. Præfectus is Latin for "stands in front".


In Roman society, the Præfectus (rendered Prefect in English) was an official appointed by a magistrate or the Emperor. They would serve to handle a specific task and tended to have a connection with the military, such as handling Legionaire's pensions, guarding the treasury, or be in charge of the city of Rome when the 2 Consuls are not present.
