Lombard law.A Germanic customary law based primarily on a code called the Edict of Rothar, published in A.D. 643. • Rothar was the King of the Lombards at the time (A.D. 636–652), and his code (written in Latin) was more complete than the Germanic leges barbarorum. — Also termed law of Lombardy; law of Langobardi. Cf. LEGES BARBARORUM.
