1625 Tower Charles I Shilling
Divine Right of Kings
The theory that God intended a sovereign and his/her family to lead the nation.
The right a sovereigns ruled with absolute power. The belief that they had to
report only to God, not their advisors, nobles, or citizens. If some one threatened
the sovereign's rule, that person and family was considered an enemy of God,
and usually was excommunicated, killed, or exiled.
This is how it was also in 17th-century England. The Stuarts were in opposition
to the democratic theories of the Whigs and Puritans. Many of this latter group migrated to the American colonies to avoid persecution.
