View Full Version : The Vehmic Court

Friday, December 23rd, 2005, 08:04 PM
During the days of struggle between Holy German Emperor and feudal rights on one side, and upstart local princes on the other, "Free Judges" played a part in defending feudal rights in the name of the Emperor all over Germany. They then achieved something of a role in folklore and literature, to the extent that some inter-war right-wingers termed themselves "Vehmic Assassins". The concept is also used by Ariosophist Lanz von Liebfels, and by some Gothic writers. The European precedent to the KKK in a way. ;)
