I posted the above excerpt from Cornelia Naumann's novel in my first post on Doris Ritter, thinking that other than the whipping scene observed through the window (and translated by me here), the dialogue was fictional. And indeed, we know that Princess Wilhelmine did not witness Doris's whipping. However, it turns out the meeting itself between these three protagonists (Princess Wilhelmine, her governess/confidante Dorothea von Sonsfeld and the King's personal valet/pet bully Eversmann) and most of the words exchanges are historically accurate, but took place several months later, in May 1731. than fictions Through an irresistible brush with the supernatural, a lonely young girl enters into an incredible odyssey—a mystical double life—not merely the fantasy or escape she expects, but a strange, wonderful and enchanting means by which she fulfills her most heartfelt desires for romance, friendship and popularity.

In respect of the Marquise de Ferrand, there are ten separate edicts concerning her or her husband in the index -- many more than for Doris, I note, presumably a reflection of the high status of her husband, the Marquis de Ferrand. According to the index, he was a "Kammerherr", which is the German for "chamberlain", a senior offical at the Royal Court. Here are the screenshots of the index: No doubt this gives you some idea of what kind of individual we are dealing with, or indeed why he had to self-publish his book. Most of the actual chapters are about 90% collected quotations from other books, mainly from antiquity, with short sections on then-current punishments where applicable. For example, the section on cutting off and tearing female breasts is mainly concerned with early Christian martyrs, but then ends with a short and disturbingly matter-of-fact paragraph saying:
This is fascinating for me, but may not be to anybody else as there is no explicit forum-relevant content -- please ignore unless you're following me down the wormhole of my Doris Ritter obsession. Sometimes, the ruler of the land may commute this penalty into imprisonment. This may apply to both elements, or only to the banishment after the completed Staupenschlag"
Taken To The Woodshed - Domestic Discipline Taken To The Woodshed - Domestic Discipline
I wasn't going to post this as I figure I have already posted enough 18th century book German scans in gothic typeface, but Jon's post ties in nicely with yet another book I've found at Google Books. This one has the grand Latin title of " Theatrum Poenarum, Suppliciorum Et Executionum Criminalium", or " The Theatre of capital and corporal punishments, which were not only in use in ancient times by all peoples and tribes, but are also still now being common at all four corners of the World", written and self-published by Jacob Döpler in 1697 (33 years before Doris's whipping). Don’t be fooled by the granite obelisk across the street that looks something like the genuine article. Some local people believe that a history-minded person rescued the real whipping post from oblivion as a landscaping stone, wrapped it in burlap, and buried it near Four Corners. When word of the hiding place got around, the people who wished to preserve the post dug it up and hid it elsewhere.
Church on the left, Town Hall in the centre, the view onto the school is obscured by the church building and we see only the house between school and Town Hall. In this 1957 photograph of the John Almy House, the Whipping Post is visible at the lower right hand corner of the building.

Judicial Corporal Punishment Of Women: Stories And Novels
There are a couple of versions of the story, but both of them involve Isaac Wilbour, a Quaker from Little Compton. Wilbour is still the only person from Sakonnet to serve as Rhode Island’s governor, from 1806 to 1807, which allows us to date the supposed events.Yes, there would have been a welcome and farewell whipping in the Spinnhaus, but not necessarily for all prisoners. I found these passages in a Prussian edict issued by Friedrich II (Doris's old maybe-lover) in 1772, forty years after Doris, which (unlike the laws in my previous post) did apply to the Brandenburg province, i.e. Potsdam, Berlin and Spandau. A whip is an MP who, as part of a team, is responsible for other MPs attending Parliament and voting along party lines These days, when a woman has commited a gruesome murder on her husband or children and is condemned among other punishments to being torn with red hot pincers, this is done also on the breasts and arms, where there is plenty of flesh."
