Not only did he force his daughter Liutgarda, in defending herself from a villanous accusation, to forego the safer modes of purgation, and to submit herself to the perilous decision of a combat,[355] but he also caused the abstract question of representation in the succession of estates to be settled in the same manner; and to this day in Germany the division of a patrimony among children and grandchildren is regulated in accordance with the law enacted by the doughty arms of the champions who fought together nine hundred years ago at Steil.[356] There was no question, indeed, which according to Otho could not be satisfactorily settled in this manner. What a cloud of powder and perfumes! It is enough here, to allude to the enormous influence of contests between the sexes on the development of wit and a lively sense of the ludicrous. They mistake a momentary popularity for lasting renown, and a sanguine temperament for the inspirations of genius. Many eminent physiologists and psychologists visited the town and cross-examined the case on the spot.

I have endeavored by frequent illustration, and reference to the best sources of information, to put the reader in the position to judge for himself; and I shall feel highly gratified if he is prompted to such investigations by what I may say, whether his final conclusions agree with mine or not.
