What can we learn about the life of the Frankish kingdom based on the “Salic truth”?

The most famous document is the Salicheskaya Pravda, created by order of King Clovis in about 500 AD. According to these laws, for the murder of a noble person (count) it was necessary to pay a vergeld (fine) in the amount of 600 solidi, a free person – 200, a dependent – 100; for the murder of a slave, his owner was paid 30 solidi. “Salic truth” testifies that the Franks lived in communities that were the owners of the land. Forests, pastures, water bodies were jointly owned, and arable land was owned by individual families. It was impossible to sell these plots, but there was a process of turning the plots into family property.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
