  LIEGE, from the Latin, ligare, to bind. The bond subsisting between the 
  subject and chief, or lord and vassal, binding the one to protection and 
  just government, the other to tribute and due subjection. The prince or 
  chief is called liege lord; the subjects liege men. The word is now applied 
  as if the liegance or bond were only to attach the people to the prince.
