her appointed guardian


Explanation:
From V&B:

lavværge sb. (jur.) (widow's) guardian;
• beskikke en lavværge for hende appoint a guardian for her.

Note:

This was in the "good old days" when females were treated more like property than equals. A widow could not speak on her own behalf. A male guardian was appointed for her.
