NAME ORIGIN
    A royal guard is a person who acts as a protector to a king, queen or other person of royalty. Some famous examples of royal guard around the world include the United Kingdom's Queen's Guard, the Swiss Guard of Vatican City and the Praetorian Guard, protectors of the Roman Emperors. The word royal derives from the Old French word roial, which ultimately comes from the Latin rex meaning "king". The word guard comes from the Old French guarder.
