The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 198

On the morrow they came and made him Emperor over themselves, and gave him every honour they could, and gave him the name of Khan, as the knight had told them. When he was made Emperor he passed statutes and new ordinances which are named Josa Can, and this is the first thing which it says, to give honour to Almighty God who freed them from bondage to enemies, and that they should call upon Him to help them from every difficulty which should befal them. The second statute was that every man who could bear arms should be with him, and the tenth man of them should be made a master, and the twentieth man should be his master, and the hundredth man should be his master, and the thousandth in like wise.
