Beowulf wergild

Postby Kazrajar В» 27.02.2020

Has the support plate been off before to your knowledge.

It was assessed from the guilty party, payable as restitution to the victim's family. The weregeld was codified, for example, under Frankish Salic Code. Weregild payment was an important legal mechanism in early Germanic society ; the other common form of legal reparation at this time was blood revenge.

The payment was typically made to the family or to the clan. Similar to the way a payment was made to family, it was also a family or kin group responsibility to ensure the payment for the wrong committed, especially if the offender is unable to cover the cost of the offense himself.

No distinction was made between murder and manslaughter until these distinctions were instituted by the re-introduction of Roman law in the 12th century. Payment of the weregild was gradually replaced with capital punishment due to Christianization , starting around the 9th century , and almost entirely by the 12th century when weregild began to cease as a practice throughout the Holy Roman Empire.

The word weregild is composed of were , meaning "man", and geld , meaning "payment or fee", as in Danegeld. The same concept outside Germanic culture is known as blood money. The size of the weregild was largely conditional upon the social rank of the victim.

There used to be something of a "basis" fee for a standard "free man" that could then be multiplied according to the social rank of the victim and the circumstances of the crime.

The weregild for women relative to that of men of equal rank varied: among the Alamanni it was double the weregild of men, among the Saxons half that of men. In the Migration period the standard weregeld for a freeman appears to have been solidi shillings , an amount reflected as the basic fee due for the death of a churl or ceorl both in later Anglo-Saxon and continental law codes. In the 8th century the Lex Alamannorum sets the weregeld for a duke or archbishop at three times the basic value shillings , while the killing of a low ranking cleric was fined with , raised to if the cleric was attacked while he was reading mass.

During the reign of Charlemagne his missi dominici required three times the regular weregild should they be killed whilst on a mission from the king.

In 9th century Mercian law a regular freeman churl was worth shillings [9] twyhyndeman , and a nobleman was worth 1, twelfhyndeman , a division established enough that two centuries later a charter of King Cnut 's would simply refer to "all his people - the twelve-hundreders and the two-hundreders". The law code even mentions the weregeld for a king, at 30, thrymsas, composed of 15, for the man, paid to the royal family, and 15, for the kingship, paid to the people.

An archbishop or nobleman is likewise valued at 15, thrymsas. The weregild for a Welshman was shillings if he owned at least one hide of land and was able to pay the king's tribute. If he has only 1 hide and cannot pay the tribute, his wergild was 80 shillings and then 70 if he was landless yet free. Thralls and slaves legally commanded no weregild, but it was commonplace to make a nominal payment in the case of a thrall and the value of the slave in such a case.

Technically this amount cannot be called a weregild, because it was more akin to a reimbursement to the owner for lost or damaged property. A classic example of a dispute over the weregild of a slave is contained in Iceland's Egil's Saga. Otr is a "great fisherman" and resembles an otter. He is 'eating a salmon and half dozing' on the river banks of Andvari's Falls when Loki kills him by throwing a stone at him. Their fine consists of "filling the [Otr] skin with gold and covering the outside with red gold.

In the novel The Lord of the Rings by J. Dresden says "That's for your dead employee's family. Take care of them with it. And leave my people out of it. It ends here. In Rick Riordan 's novel The Hammer of Thor , Hearthstone, an elf, must pay a wergild for his brother Andriron's death when they were children. Hearthstone, the older brother, was distracted and playing with rocks when a Brunnmigi emerged from a well and killed Andiron.

Since Hearthstone was deaf, he didn't notice until it was too late. Hearthstone was forced, by their father, to skin the large beast by himself.

To pay his wergild, he had to cover every piece of fur with gold earned from his father. Every meal and any freetime, among other things, cost Hearthstone earned gold. This task wasn't accomplished until years later, and his father, Alderman, was reluctant to consider the debt paid, but finally conceded that Hearthstone was released from the debt.
