(Corrected by the Table of Regnal Years in Sir Harris Nicolas's " Chronology of History.")

[blocks in formation]

It has been generally assumed that the theory of "the king never dies" has been in practice since the Norman conquest; consequently, William L.'s reign has been usually dated from the day of the battle of Hastings, October 14, 1066, and all subsequent reigns from the death or deposition of the previous king. But the reigns of the first eight kings after the Conquest did not commence till their coronation. The principle of hereditary right was first distinctly recognised on the accession of Edward I., whose reign, however, did not commence till the day on which he was proclaimed king, four days after his father's death. The reign of Edward IV. is dated from the day on which he deposed Henry VI.; but it did not become law and practice to date a reign from the death of the previous king until the accession of Edward VI., on the death of his father Henry VIII.,-a practice only since interrupted by the events following the death of Charles I. and the expulsion of James II. + In some historical, and in all legal documents, the reign of Charles II. is reckoned from his father's death.
