League Units Converter
What does league refer to?
The league is a subsidiary unit of length in the British Imperial system, the longest unit in this system. It is defined as 5280 yards. It was common in Europe and Latin America, but is no longer an official unit in any nation.
The league was estimated by the Romans to be equal to 1,500 paces—a pace, or passus, in Roman measure being nearly 5 feet (1.5 metres). In the late 18th century the league also came to refer to the distance a cannon shot could be fired at menacing ships offshore. This resulted in the 3-mile offshore territorial limit.
