Marshal (also spelled marshall, esp. in British English)<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref><ref>[1] According to Merriam Webster's, marshall is "considered a spelling error by several commentators" and "In American English, especially, marshal is the better choice."</ref> is a term used in several official titles in various branches of society. As marshals became trusted members of the courts of Medieval Europe, the title grew in reputation. During the last few centuries, it has been used for elevated offices, such as in military rank and civilian law enforcement.
