Bencriht is a Sevenish word that literally means, "bench-right." It is an agreement in the Seven Kingdoms and Svellheim between a lord and a retainer. The retainer promises his service to the lord in whatever capacity they agree, while the lord in return promises a seat on the benches in his hall. This also implies that the lord will feed, clothe, and shelter those who have sworn to him.
