The Byzantine emperor Justinian wished to compile a code of laws and preserve the ways of ancient Rome; however, he hadn't the slightest idea how to go about doing so.
Justinian went to the royal wizard Gustav to seek advice. The wizard told him that the laws of ancient Rome were guarded by a terrible dragon.
Corpus Juris Civilis
And so Justinian donned his suit of armor, picked up his sword, and set off on a quest to slay the dragon.
The dragon was fierce and strong, and the two fought for hours. Finally, emperor Justinian was able to defeat the beast.
Justinian gathered the laws of ancient Rome and returned home. He then organized and revised them, naming the finished product "Corpus Juris Civilis", meaning "Body of Civil Law".
Justinian's Code had a large influence. Leaders in Western Europe modeled their laws after those of emperor Justinian. His code even played a role in the creation of modern-day international law.
