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 Malmutius' laws her Martian first did frame.

Drayton: Polyolbion, viii.
