The tenure of kings and magistrates: proving, that it is lawfull, and hath been held so through all ages, for any, who have the power, to call to account a tyrant, or wicked King, and after due conviction, to depose, and put him to death; if the ordinary magistrate have neglected, or deny'd to doe it. And that they, who of late so much blame deposing, are the men that did it themselves.

John Milton London : Printed by Matthew Simmons, nextdoore to the Gil-Lyon sic in Aldersgate Street, 1650
