The inclusion of the Lex Salica in this personal historical compendium is due to the compiler's interest in succession. On top of fol. 97v he noted: Ipsi in hereditatem succedant. De terra vero salica nulla porcio hereditatis mulieri veniat sed ad virilem sexum tota terre hereditas perveniat. [Karl Ubl]
