The Execution of Johann von Uexkull

«City’s air gives release» - was the new order of the city’s magistrate in the sixteenth century. It guaranteed freedom to every peasant who managed to run away from his landowner and spend hundred and one day within the city boarders. «Laws are for the rootless bastards!» - declared baron Johann von Uexkull, who was captured and convicted for killing his escaped peasant. The law, however, clarified that pedigree should not be taken into consideration.
On the 7th of May, 1535 baron was beheaded. Trial refused to accept his bribes. Law is above the benefit.
