Bridal Gift



    The dos was the bridal gift a man promised to his future wife at their betrothal. Usually it consisted of landed property together with its moveable and immovable assets. According to a tradition rooted in late Roman and Frankish law, a woman could freely dispose of her dos. Other legal cultures were more restrictive.
