Al*lo"di*um (#), n. [LL. allodium, alodium, alodis, alaudis, of Ger. origin; cf. OHG. al all, and t (AS. ead) possession, property. It means, therefore, entirely one's property.] Law

Freehold estate; land which is the absolute property of the owner; real estate held in absolute independence, without being subject to any rent, service, or acknowledgment to a superior. It is thus opposed to feud.

Blackstone. Bouvier.
