A29487 [A Brief] vindication of the Parliamentary proceedings against the late King James II proving that the right of succession to government (by nearness of blood) is not by the law of God or nature, but by politick institution : with several instances of deposing evil princes, shewing, that no prince hath any title originally but by the consent of the people. 1689 (1689) Wing B4656; ESTC R17719 41,711 76

that_o it_o be_v never_o do_v to_o any_o prince_n before_o henry_n the_o five_o all_o which_o point_n do_v demonstrate_v that_o it_o be_v the_o coronation_n and_o admission_n that_o make_v a_o true_a and_o perfect_a king_n let_v the_o title_n by_o succession_n be_v what_o it_o will_v and_o that_o the_o consent_n of_o the_o realm_n be_v of_o much_o great_a consequence_n than_o nearness_n of_o blood._n this_o may_v be_v prove_v by_o many_o example_n in_o england_n where_o admission_n have_v prevail_v against_o right_n of_o succession_n as_o in_o william_n rufus_n who_o succeed_v the_o conqueror_n and_o king_n henry_n the_o first_o his_o brother_n in_o king_n stephen_n king_n john_n and_o other_o who_o only_o by_o admission_n of_o the_o realm_n be_v king_n against_o the_o order_n of_o succession_n to_o these_o we_o may_v add_v henry_n and_o edward_n both_o surname_v the_o four_o who_o entrance_n to_o the_o crown_n if_o we_o well_o consider_v we_o shall_v find_v that_o both_o of_o they_o found_v the_o best_a and_o sure_a part_n of_o their_o title_n upon_o the_o election_n and_o consent_n of_o the_o people_n and_o both_o of_o they_o have_v remorse_n of_o conscience_n at_o their_o die_a day_n be_v they_o put_v so_o many_o man_n to_o death_n for_o maintenance_n of_o their_o right_n and_o title_n have_v no_o better_a way_n to_o appease_v their_o own_o mind_n but_o by_o think_v they_o be_v place_v on_o the_o throne_n by_o the_o voice_n of_o the_o realm_n and_o consequent_o may_v lawful_o defend_v the_o same_o and_o punish_v such_o as_o intend_v to_o deprive_v they_o moreover_o if_o we_o look_v into_o the_o action_n of_o prince_n in_o all_o age_n we_o shall_v find_v that_o such_o king_n as_o be_v most_o politic_a and_o have_v the_o least_o doubt_n or_o suspicion_n of_o trouble_n about_o the_o title_n after_o their_o death_n have_v cause_v their_o son_n to_o be_v crown_v in_o their_o own_o day_n as_o trust_v more_o to_o that_o than_o to_o their_o title_n by_o succession_n tho'_o they_o be_v never_o so_o lawful_o and_o lineal_o descend_v and_o of_o this_o i_o can_v allege_v many_o example_n out_o of_o divers_a country_n but_o special_o in_o france_n since_o the_o last_o line_n of_o capetus_n come_v to_o that_o crown_n for_o hugh_n capetus_n himself_o procure_v robert_n his_o elder_a son_n to_o be_v crown_v in_o his_o own_o day_n and_o robert_n do_v the_o same_o for_o his_o young_a son_n henry_n henry_n also_o do_v entreat_v the_o state_n of_o france_n to_o admit_v and_o crown_n philip_n the_o first_o his_o elder_a son_n in_o his_o own_o time_n and_o this_o king_n son_n lewis_n do_v the_o same_o to_o both_o his_o son_n first_o to_o philip_n and_o after_o his_o death_n to_o lewis_n the_o young_a and_o for_o the_o same_o cause_n the_o prince_n of_o spain_n be_v swear_v and_o admit_v by_o the_o realm_n during_o his_o facher_n reign_v the_o same_o consideration_n also_o move_v king_n david_n to_o crown_v his_o son_n solomon_n in_o his_o own_o day_n and_o final_o our_o king_n henry_n the_o second_o of_o england_n consider_v the_o alteration_n the_o realm_n have_v make_v in_o admit_v king_n stephen_n before_o he_o against_o the_o order_n of_o lineal_a succession_n and_o fear_v the_o like_a may_v happen_v after_o he_o cause_v his_o elder_a son_n henry_n to_o be_v crown_v in_o his_o life_n time_n but_o this_o device_n have_v but_o ill_a success_n for_o king_n henry_n the_o young_a make_v war_n upon_o king_n henry_n the_o elder_a and_o get_v both_o the_o king_n of_o france_n and_o scotland_n and_o many_o noble_n both_o of_o england_n and_o normandy_n to_o take_v his_o part_n for_o which_o cause_n it_o be_v probable_a that_o this_o thing_n have_v never_o since_o that_o time_n be_v use_v in_o england_n but_o yet_o hereby_o its_o evident_a what_o the_o opinion_n of_o the_o world_n be_v in_o those_o day_n of_o the_o force_n of_o coronation_n and_o admission_n of_o the_o commonwealth_n and_o how_o little_a the_o propinquity_n of_o blood_n prevail_v without_o it_o i_o may_v bring_v insinite_a example_n from_o the_o grecian_n and_o roman_n to_o this_o purpose_n but_o that_o it_o may_v be_v ojbect_v that_o they_o be_v too_o

now_o since_o king_n william_n the_o first_o common_o call_v the_o conqueror_n tho'_o in_o truth_n he_o never_o ground_v his_o title_n upon_o any_o thing_n but_o the_o election_n of_o the_o

this_o henry_n the_o three_o the_o house_n of_o britain_n lancaster_n and_o york_n do_v seem_v to_o issue_n as_o a_o triple_a branch_n our_o of_o one_o tree_n now_o if_o we_o consider_v the_o title_n of_o the_o king_n of_o the_o house_n of_o york_n and_o those_o of_o lancaster_n we_o shall_v see_v plain_o that_o the_o best_a of_o all_o their_o title_n after_o the_o deposition_n of_o king_n
