Bantards are social trades V & S tribute traditions

January 19 2021.

Hello, dear blog readers Sometimes we have words, the meaning of which is not entirely understood, and the importance goes deeply in history.

One of these words is Bastard - the term that began to actively be used almost a thousand years ago and for many people this word was fateful.


Today we will talk about anyone such badards when this term has appeared, as the attitude towards such people in different centuries has changed and what famous historical personality and heroes of books were bastards.

Bastard is ...

The concept of "Bastard" appeared in the Middle Ages. The first mention of this term can be found in French sources dating from the XI century. Since a religion was served as a basis for social life in Western Europe, church The marriage was considered indispensable .

Bantards are children Born out of marriage who could not claim any status nor inheritance or legitimate recognition. Moreover, the medieval society belonged to such people with non-observed contempt.

Interesting and feature of the origin of this word. Its value linguistically connected with Latin " Bastum. "(Direct translation -" saddle "), but this base is not in direct, but in a figurative sense.

It turned out quite a logical chain: "Bastardus" -> "Casual in the saddle" -> "The child, winning on a kind of traveler." This means that the child was not born from legitimate spouses in a decided marriage, but towing, randomly.

As for the Russian language, in accordance with " Intellular dictionary "V. Dalya,

Bastard is not only an illegitimate child, but also a hybrid of animals or some mix from crossing plants of different types.

At the same time, Wikipedia offers several more values, the most relevant of which is associated with English-speaking curses, similar to the meaning of Russian "bastard" and "geek".

In the Middle Ages, any connection outside of marriage was considered shameful and as a child's child, an illegitimate child could not inherit a name or title, nor the land of a noble parent.


However, some bastards nevertheless recognized . Usually these were children of high-ranking specialists who have sufficient power in order to somehow "legitimize" such a child and ensure the future.

Royal Blood Bastards could even claim title, but only if their mother was the daughter of Prince or a representative of the same noble kind. There are cases when the husbands sentenced their wives to seduce a noble man to conceive a child and, thus, to get a lifelong provision.

However, the extramarital origin was not considered a tabooed topic, and these issues were often discussed at the legislative level. The most vivid examples of such laws are the "Merton Statute" (1235) and "Poor Laws" adopted in England in 1536. These were excellent attempts to prevent conflicts and litigation by regulating the rights of inheritance and withdraw some social limitations.

А prohibitions for illegitimate There was a lot of: for example, bastards could not practice as doctors and could not hold any public posts.

Time for a change

The discriminatory position of the extramarital children, the black thread penetrated the whole era of VII to the XI centuries., Slowly, but confidently changed. These changes correlated with changes dictated by life in property law and family legislation.

This was especially noticeable during the development of the Gregorian reform, the tightest framework of the marriage and forbidden incest and polygamy, and then later, when the principles of mayogerate began to practice in Europe instead of bulk fretsmen borrowed from the ancient Romans.

In this regard, the turning point can be considered a border of the XIV-XV centuries, a radically changed attitude towards illegitimate.

Some significant cities Delighted the bastards of law Being your full-fledged residents, laws were adopted, allowing to wear bastards (who had not yet had the right to inherit the main property) of generous gifts from movable property, to provide an expanded bonus and empower their lifelong board.

In addition, illegitimate received the right to their own heraldry. So, Coat of arms Bastarda Could repeat the symbolism of his father's house, but under one condition: the drawing was crossed by the red line ("bandaging"), which pointed to its special status.


Well, and the nobility of the nobility of the bastards could also wear, but, unlike legitimate heirs, she should have been attached not on the right, but on the left shoulder.

In Russia Also, there was a system for legalized bastards - their surname became derived from the surname of the noble family. For example, the bastards of Trubetski could wear Bezzi's surname.

They had the right to occupy high-ranking positions and claim part of the property of famous parents. However, this rule was maintained only for those whose mother and father were representatives of the noble dynasties.

So continued before the beginning of XVIII In., while in Russia, a decree was issued on the right of an extramarital child to inherit the property of the mother and receive limited content from the Father.

At the same time in Britain, the "act of law-life" was proclaimed, which recognized the equality of all children. And already in the second half of the XVIII century. Such legislation was signed by the US government.

Famous bastards

The story recalls a lot of cases when bastards ranked high in society. For example, the illegitimate son of Heinrich II Wilhelm received a title of graph and later became one of the most influential venes of England.

While Count Overnic Charles de Valua, the extramarital child of Charles IX and beauty-blunder marieh, was not satisfied with the title and after the death of his father participated in conspiracies against the new King Heinrich IV, who, Ironically, was also the father of Bastard - Antoine Bourbon -Bay.

Генриха IV

Conspuses regarding the kings in Western Europe of that time were familiar - just as the presence of illegitimate children, who were trying to capture power with all their forces and possible means.

However, many of the bachers still received recognition and throne without special intrigues and conflicts, especially when mighty interests had their own goals. As a rule, it was depriving the inheritance of any of his relatives. But there are others Examples of recognition of bastardov :

  1. Vladimir Saint, Son Prince Svyatoslav and a simple key;
  2. Wilhelm I The Conqueror, the extramarital son of the Duke of Normandy Robert II magnificent, who was the only child of his father and the title of Count inherited almost on legitimate grounds. Wilhelm, by the way, is the most famous Bastard, because he managed not only to climb to the British throne, but also to combine most of the scattered lands in the Unified English kingdom;
  3. Heinrich II, the first National King of England, is known to those who took possessions and titles from legitimate heirs in favor of the Corneelsky Count, its extramarital son. Генрих II

In general, if you analyze the genealogical trees of any dynasties, in each of them there will certainly have a siblos or illegitimate and endowed with rights or suspected of an extramarital origin. And in some pedigrees such descendants are not one or two, but a fair amount.

Sometimes reality replaced the gun in political games, but it did not prevent some Bastards occupy thrones , and legitimate heirs who have lost the chances of power, to be overboard only because hostile court coalitions (what is it?) They swamped them with bastards.

Stories about bastards in culture and literature

The first mention of children born out of marriage can be found in ancient Greek mythology. The gods of Eldlats were famous for their love connections with simple mortals. The most famous ancient Greek Bastard - Hercules , son of Zeus and Beauty Alcmen, the faithful spouse of the Hero of Amphitrion, in the image of which gave God who infected with passion appeared to Alcmen and resiled her husband.

The theme of the Bastardians has always been burning and reflected not only in the literature, but also on the dual pages of history. So, Elizabeth I Tudor , one of the greatest kind of the Age of the Late Middle Ages, has been branded by Bastarda more than once, although her parents were King Henry VIII and his legal spouse Anna Boleyn.


The fact is that after the death of the mother executed on Eshafote, the father was removed to enter into a new marriage for the birth of the throne. And Elizaven was declared illegitimate, since her mother did not become a real monarch and remained the queen-consort to death.

Stories about the fate of extramarital children inspired many Eminent authors - Fedor Dostoevsky, Lion Tolstoy, Charles Dickens.

And the beginning of this epopea put the French-Trover Raoul Cambrain, who is attributed to the authorship of the eponymic (giving name, the same name) Poem on the legendary bastard, which struggles for the right of ownership of their own fighter (vassal pets).


And this is not to mention such "beaten" topics like King Arthur (in the V-VI centuries. Was the leader of the Britons) and Karl the Great on nicknamed Charleman, the King of Franks and Langobard in the second half of the VIII century.

But perhaps, the most popular Bastardom in media space today has a handsome man. John Snow - One of the key characters of the book of George Martin "Song of Ice and Flame".

The noble young man, whom everyone considered the extramarital son "who revealed in the saddle." Stark, in fact, turned out to be a legitimate heir of the Iron throne, which he never needed.


But the choice of bastards of that time (in the "Game of Thrones" there was another Ramsi Bolton, Walder Rivers, Cotter Pike, etc.) is usually small - either perpetual duty in a night doser, or an unprotected service in a squad of some Lord.
