The Fifth is a custom among the Aiel. It states that after they conquer a place, they are entitled to take a fifth of all that the conquered hold has, save food.

In Caemlyn, Tear, and various other cities, the Aiel have been refused the right of the fifth by Rand al'Thor, their prophesied Car'a'carn, for the reason that he cannot afford for the Aiel to be seen as enemies, or for the areas to be weakened in the times of approaching war.[1]
