View Full Version : The Switch of the Law of the Frisians

The pioneering and surpassable Brothers Grimm published in their “Deutsche Sagen” [German Sagas] about the divine origin of the Frisian law in the edition of “Altfriesengesetz” [Old Frisian law], edit. Wierdsma I., pg 101- 108 following saga:

As King Karl, the Frank, and King Radbod, Denmark, clashed in the lands of the Frisian, each occupied a place in the Franekergau with their army, and each said: the land is his. The sages wanted to mediate [suehnen] but the Lords wanted to fight it out. Then they searched for the right decision [Suehne], until they finally put it into the hands of the two kings: Who of the two would surpass the other in being silent should have won. Then they brought the two kings together. There they stood in the round for an etmal (time of a day and a night). Then King Karl dropped his glove. King Radbod took it and gave it to King Karl. Then King Karl spoke: Ha ha, the land is mine and laughed, therefore the place is called Hachensee. “Why?” said King Radbod. Then King Karl spoke: “You became my man”. Then Radbod spoke: “Oh wach!” (oh weh). Therefore the place is called “Wachensee”.

Then King Radbod left the land and King Karl wanted to hold a Thing. But he could not because there was not enough free land to hold a Thing on. Then he send to the seven sealand and told them to give him a free place (unowned land) for holding a Thing. Then they bought with treasure and Schilling [a coin] Deldemanes. There he held a Thing and invited the Frisians to drive there and to choose their law. Then they ask for a Frist [extension] before their meeting. And he granted them Urlaub [vacation for discussion]. The other day he told them to come before the law. Then they came and elected their law-speaker, twelve of the seven sealands. Then he told them to choose the law. Then they ask for a Frist. He told them to come back on the third day. There they called the Notschein [time out because of a lawful obstacle]. On the fourth day they did the same and so on the fifth. Those are the two Frists and three Notscheine (obvious, recognizable distress, coercion). On the six day he told them to choose the law. There they spoke: they could not.

Then the King spoke: Now I layout three choices for you, what do you prefer: That we kill you, or that you become serfs, or that we give you a boat, so strong and good, that it will last ebb and flow tides but without oar and rudder and rope?

They chose the boat, they left with the ebb tide and drove out so far, that there was no more land in sight. There the mood sank. Then one spoke, he was of Wittekinds lineage, the first Asegese [judge]: “I have heard, that our Lord God, as he was on earth, had 12 disciples and he himself was the thirteenth and he came to each through closed doors, and he comforted each and taught them. Why do we not ask, that he sends us a thirteenth who is teaching us the law and directs us to land.?” There they fell to their knees and prayed intimately. As they finished their prayer they saw a thirteenth sitting at the rudder and an axis on his shoulder, with which he steered to the land, against the waters and the wind. As they reached land he threw his axis on the land and kicked a chunk of earth from the ground. There a spring came out of the Earth, hence it’s name Achsenhof. They came on land at Eschweg and said around the spring. And what the thirteenth taught them they accepted as the law. But nobody knew who the thirteenth was, so equal was he among them. As he directed them to the law, they were only twelve. Therefore in the land shall always be thirteen Aseges. Therefore the law shall be spoken in Eschwege at the Achsenhof. And if they cannot come to a conclusion (because they are divided), so the seven overrule the six.

That is the landlaw of the Frisians.

This important saga of the Frisians has to be explained by the “Kala” (G.-L.-B. No. 1pg 36 – 38 ff; No. 2 pg 53 – 54, 64) , because the words are a deception for the non-iniated. It is wrong to understand under the two Kings the Frankenking Karl der Grosse [Char-le-magne] (Slactenaere) or the Friesenherzog (or king) Radbod, but it is veiled by the Kala: “karl” (kar = locked,closed and ol=spirit; therefore the mighty, who oppresses the spirit) and “Radbod” (rad = right, law and bod = to rule, therefore the commanding right). Both contrasting opinion stood silently across. Then the despot dropped his glove, then the oppressed law picked it up. That is ario-germanic wisdom and offers four interpretations:

1. The handing over of the glove was saxon law custom and to whom the king handed over his glove was given the rights to the higher jurisdiction. So to the bishop of Paderborn was given his bishophood by king Henry II.

2. The glove was symbol or sign for the right to mint coins

3. The Freiungsstone [markstone for thedistrict of the courts responsibility] was often marked with a glove (often also an axe with a severed hand) to show how far the Freiung [district] was .

4. The thrown glove or handed over on a lance tip was the sign for a challenge to battle, the battle pawn, which had to be retrieved by fight.
The power “behabte” (“handhabte”) [handled] the law and the guardian of the law picked up the glove as he saw himself in charge of the law-speaking; but the power said “Hachensee” (hag=enclosed, like car; ense=only,mighty) , with which he spoke what was already hinted through the name “Karol”. Now the law-keeper (Radbod) saw the error, he spoke: “Wachensee” (wach, uach, uak, ak= wake, guard, be active; ense=only,mighty) and gave way to the power in the land. The power and tyranny wanted to do have a Thing for law-speaking but without preserving the law, the law-speaker could not find the law. They claimed the two Frists and three Notscheine but still remained mute. Also a Thing could only be held on free land (a halgadom). “With treasure and Schilling [a coin] they bought the Deldemanes”. That is again “Kala”. “Treasure” is the created but also the creator and the by-judge [in german the creator is called ‘Schoepfer’ and the by-judge ‘Schoeffe’, he hints at the similarity in the words and shows they mean the same]. And “Schilling” is the created, and also the judge (“skillen”= to judge and also “Schellen” [bells], therefore the bell is the hieroglyph for judge). Deldemanes parts into ti-el-de-manes, also “Kala”. Ti=to create, to make; el=fire; de=there; manes=moon. It says: “create the light (of the law) under the moon.” Therefore in the night.

The hidden meaning is: After the commanding right (Radbod) left the land, so are meeting the judges and by-judges during the night, to preserve the light of the law, as it was forbidden for them to do during the day. Therefore they remained mute before the tyrann and could not choose the law.

In a weak boat without oar, rudder and rope, they let themselves drift with the ebb tide into the sea; that means the twelve Asegesen let themselves be ruled by the natural law, because see means “Lagu” (G.-L.-B. No 1, pg 17, the “laf” – rune) trusting in divine help. This they found, because the thirteenth (Radbod) accompanied them and led them “the axis on the shoulder to the Achsenhof and Echwege” ..and threw the axis and kicked a chunk of earth from the ground” from under which a spring opened. This important place stresses four times “Achs” in connection with chunk of earth in the following order: Axis, shoulder [in german Achsel], “achs-born”, “Achsenhof” and “Achs-way =Eschwege”. – Four times “Achs” = fyr-ask, Fire-creation or Ur-creation out of the Ur-fire or God. Achsel = ask – el, creation of light. Chunk of earth [in old german: Erdwasen] = essence [Wesen in german] of the earth, it’s administration [Verwesung in old german and has the same root as Wesen and Erdwasen]. Spring [in old german: Born], origin, well – Achsenhof = Ask – hag, nursing of the created; Achs-way – ask-huag, the movement, change of the created, life. The meaning of this ‘kaling’ is: “Out of the Ur-fyr came the Ur-light (of the law, natural-ur-law), as the wielding essential of the earth, it was nursed and stays alive”.

Further we have to consider that nobody knew who the thirteenth was who always was similar to each of them. That is easy to explain through what was said in the beginning of divine revelation. He was the apolare balance between intuition and intelligence, the Godsoul, the conscience [Gewissen in german], that always says the certain [gewisse in german], the “right”, the “rightgiving”. If at split opinions of the Aseges the “seven” should overrule “the six”, so it means: seven is the number of the sun, the sun is the living symbol of the Ur-fyr, God; six (sexual) the number of the created, the cosmos. That is: the human has to be silent when the divine speaks the judgement. That further means: that the human compassion has to be silent when faced with the divine law.

If we put together the results of the ‘kaled’ messages of the saga, we get the description of the creation of the Feme through the rape and oppression of the existing law, the requisite legal, by tyranny which might have been the king of the Franks, Karl [Char-le-magne]. The old Femanen – the saga calles them Asegeses – have been muted but they but the guarded and maintained the Rita at the shining moon at night, ‘hidden way’. They have guarded and kept alive the old Frisian law, born out of the Urfyr as the Ur-light of the law, created out of the Ur-natural law, and born by the Earth, humanity.

As there is no more speaking of king Karl, so the maintaining of the law happened against his will, secretly in a hidden way – as Feme. From there the law was guarded and gained strength in the customary law, the common law, which stood steadfast against the written law and could not be oppressed even when raped in later times.

As this message – though in kaled form – was put as an introduction to the law of the Frisians that the kaled secrets of the one’s in the know had been kept as well as the traditions.

That is a translation of a small part of 'the Rita of the Armanes' by von List.

Modern interpretations confirm that the Frisians have been a subgroup of the saxons, or more precise that saxons (sassen = settlers) have been the name of a group of several small tribes, among them the Frisians.

The switch was from the common law of the law-speakers to the roman law, brought by the half Jew, King Karl (Charle-magne)
