Title : Palmerius of Picciati: Innocent III meets his "Martin Guerre" [In the early thirteenth century, Pope Innocent III drafted a decretal covering a case of disputed identity. A man claiming to be the missing Palmerius of Picciati sued for return of his wife, who had remarried in his absence, and of his property. Faced with conflicting testimony, the pope ruled that the wife, Gilla, should remain with her second husband. Innocent preferred leaving Gilla with her second husband rather than forcing her to return to "Palmerius," with whom she might have been unhappy, despite existing law favoring a first husband over a second if a man presumed dead reappeared.
