The Hanse - Another Research Tidbit

Another item from my research on the new novel about the Hanseatic League:

"If a citizen gives his daughter or niece in marriage to a man [from another city], and another man comes and says that she is his lawful wife, but cannot prove it, he shall be beheaded."

Ouch. Now, that is over the line, surely.
