A line from the movie Pompeii (2014):
Make way! Make way! Off! Off the road! Make way for your betters! Move it, scum! Clear the way there! Move!
What does for your betters exactly mean? I know of the expression your elders and betters which means that you should respect people who are older than you. But in the movie there are no old people in the carriage—only young noble women.
