To Claim Something: To Say That Something, You Can Not Prove, Is True

To claim something: You claim something that you can not prove when you say that you are responsible for it, able to do it, or that it belongs to you; even though there is no evidence of it.

  • Police Inspector: He has proven to be more than a magician.
  • Prince Leopoldo: Do you claim supernatural power?
  • Eisenheim: Perhaps, I'll make you disappear. 
  • Prince Leopoldo: I want to have an example made of him...
  • Police Inspector: I hereby arrest Eisenheim the illusionist.
  • Hereby means "to officially do something because you have legal authorization for it".

See you!
