How Long Is a League?

Answer

A league is a unit of length. It was long common in Europe and Latin America, but it is no longer an official unit in any nation. The league most frequently refers to the distance a person or a horse can walk in an hour, however, the league has multiple values. The league was most often considered to be 3 miles; this was about 4.8 km if referring to the statute (land) mile (now 1609.344 m or 5,280 survey feet, though varying slightly through history) or about 5.6 km if referring to the nautical mile (1,852 m or 6,076 feet).
