Yes Emperor Justinian, just please do not kill me.
You will give me three times the gold you stole.
to bad we had an agreement
wait I don't want to be a knight anymore
child you are going to go to work as a slave for the king
In Emperor Justinians time, if you stole something you could be sued up to three times the amount. In modern day america you steal something it's a fine, and jail time. I do agree with this part Emporor Justinians code of law
I finaly have my own land.
in Emperor Justinians time, Verbal agreements are binding. The victim can sue for violation of the agreement. Well in modern day America Verbal agreements are not binding for adults rather agreements must be written and signed to be upheld in court. I do not agree with this part of Emperor Justinians code of law. We are humans we change our minds on a day to day basis
princess you shall be banished for the murder of the king & queen
in emperor Justinians time Parents have ultimate power over their children. No one else has power over their children. Now in modern America
in emporor justinians time woman could own land make contracts and wills and bring law suits.
