illegitimate sons in medieval Europe did not have the right of inheritance on the paternal side, but did they have the right of inheritance on the maternal side?




answer: the owner has no information about the early Middle Ages. In the late Middle Ages, several regional codes were called out from the department database.

first of all, this answer is just an example of regional laws. Please don’t expand it to the whole middle ages without excellent materials. Just watch the leopard with the Lord.

is an ancient German warning. If it is incorrect, please ask the hidden floor sweeping monk for advice.

first answer the Lord to put a paragraph of Latin, don’t hit me. Illegitiminati (s), utsuntpurii… Secundumconsstudinempatrieinnullosuccedunt (summalegumii69)

OK, now answer the main words:

unorthodox children are children born outside marriage and cannot replace their father according to custom. (summalegumii69)

look, it only clearly says [according to custom, you can’t replace your father], but it doesn’t say you can’t replace your mother. Answer: when the Lord studied inheritance law and marriage law, professional books simply said that illegitimate children in the Middle Ages had the inheritance right of the mother, but not the inheritance right of the father. In a better mood, I’ll add that in the late Middle Ages, they often admitted that they had the right to claim alimony from their mother and father.

don’t worry about being happy. First of all, we must find out what illegitimate children are.

from the above sentence, we can see that the correct expression of illegitimate children should be [illegitimate children]. So when you see the name of [illegitimate children], you may feel that the definition is very clear. It is not a child born before the biological parents are married. In fact, it is not. The law will distinguish in more detail: unmarried at conception and unmarried at birth, which seems that the slight difference has a huge impact on the child’s lifelong rights.

then the question comes – was the child born illegitimate when I was pregnant and married? I got married when I was pregnant and divorced when I was born. Is the child illegitimate?

I got married when I was pregnant. Was the child whose father died at birth illegitimate?

a man makes a housewife of a woman who slept before and gave birth to a child, two or three. He wanted her before marriage and then brought her into marriage, so she and his children won the inheritance (right) and property (aside: most of the non Latin French scriptures are written in this tone, which is solemn and explicit, so sometimes it’s a great pleasure to read the literature…) The title of Article 93 is: children born out of wedlock, priests and monks have no right of inheritance

if the father of children born out of wedlock does not marry their mother, they, like the children of priests and monks, have the right of inheritance after their mother marries others and has [legitimate] heirs What about children born out of wedlock? The following 94 items are not mentioned. They are about the division of property under invalid marriage. However, there is one in Schwarzenegger’s mirror:

the first half is not important, but the second half is important: children born out of wedlock can regain their rights through [orthodox marriage], that is, in some areas, even if his father doesn’t marry his mother, he has the hope of becoming a serious citizen: that is to find a [legitimate child] to marry. But this means that he will relinquish his right to inherit the property of distant relatives in exchange for their children to inherit their property as legitimate [legitimate children].

answer the main question for a long time, and then finally make a summary of the central idea: > theoretically, illegitimate children in the late Middle Ages had the right of inheritance from the mother.

> the definition of illegitimate children is completely different from one region to another. At the same time, their inheritance rights are also determined according to regional customs.

answer only shows you the relevant customs in the Vienna iron book and Schwarzenegger developed from Saxony mirror in Europe in the middle century. I hope you don’t feel very headache when reading. The answer Lord has filled countless dog blood TV dramas with happy brain when writing the answer In addition, @ Seamonkey mentioned English law in the following answer. Since they have endured the answer’s vernacular and read so much, it’s better to read another excellent answer =) in addition, this also provided heavy dry goods in the comment, Allow me to be lazy and continue to quote: [in addition, it seems that whether the status of both parents is equal in Germany also needs to be considered. For a child born out of wedlock, both parents are free persons and the father is free persons. The status of the mother should be different, and the status of the person should be inherited from the matrilineal. The children of the so-called morganicmaria of the later ruling families in Germany can only inherit the status of the mother. I remember that this tradition came from Lombards, But I can only find that the edictumrothari compiled by rothari, king of Lombardy in the seventh century stipulates that children born out of wedlock can inherit a small part of the patrilineal inheritance in a certain proportion.] Thanks to Seamonkey’s clues, the respondent found relevant answers in Volume VI of italyandherinvaders (Hodgkin, 1889, Oxford), which is also part of the answer in the early Middle Ages: edictumrothari is first a Latin code, but interestingly, the Latin used in it is not written Latin, But “colloquial Latin” contains various Lombardy terms that cannot be translated into Latin. Generally speaking, this is a code that has not been much affected by Roman law. After reading the Latin quoted below, I think this code is quite in line with the wild Germanic painting style that we often supplement. Answer: the Lord thinks it’s very interesting. He plans to find the original text when he is free The relevant provisions on Inheritance and gift are set out in cliiiicclxxvii.
