Ruthen

I found a land measurement in old 19th Century documents of "Ruthen". For example "Ackerland dritter Klasse auf der Brücke von 45 Ruthen 10 Fuß . . ."

Does anyone know anything about this unit of measurement? How big is it?

Any help is appreciated.

This will do

How big it is depends on time and region. Also "Fuß" = foot is not the same at any time and region.
