Via Regia means "King's Highway". It is an imperial road and an ancient road. Via Regia, in the usual sense, means not just a specific road, rather a type of road. It was legally associated with the king and remained under special protection. There were many such country roads and military roads in the Holy Roman Empire e.g. the King's road from Menzlin to Wismar in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, the "most significant East-West road in the north" of the medieval west Slavic settlement areas. The best known "Via Regia", with time, came to be called Via Regia itself.
