who was made heir by the will finds his way barred
by the law “A disinherited son shall receive none of
his father's property.” The basis
is one resting on
the letter of the law
and the problem is
whether he can inherit by any means at all? can he
do so in accordance with the intention of his father?
or in virtue of the fact that he was made heir by the
will? The problem confronting the bastard is twofold, since he was born after the two legitimate sons
and was not born before a legitimate son.
