@David Richerby he most likely was armed. Or it is required that the monarch was shooting?

I think a reasonable person may think of a commander that he perticipated even he was far from the frontline and only conducted the planning. Does this count? Or should he physically be present?

What if the monarch has just visited the front, like a commander? Should he shoot or be under fire or lead an attacK?

comment Why was France granted an equal status among victors of World War II?
How the buildup correlates with a place in Security Council? Germany got build up even without it.

@Ne Mo Spartacus was a convicted criminal. He initially served as a soldier but then has been punished and sentenced to be a gladiator. Note that legally in Rome only criminals and rebels could be sold to become gladiators, household slaves could not (unless they comitted a crime). Regarding being slave until one dies, a rule for household slaves was that they would be freed upon reaching old age.
