Martian Laws

.

Laws compiled by Martia, wife of Guithelin, great-grandson of Mulmutius, who established in England the Mulmutian Laws. Alfred translated both these codes into Saxon-English.

“Guynteline … whose queen, … to show her upright mind,

To wise Malmutiusʹ laws her Martian first did frame.”


Drayton: Polyolbion, viii.
