Rules of noble succession

Written by Jan-Olov von Wowern

Continued from page 1

The vast majority of all noble families have agnatic succession, meaning both sons and daughters of a noble father are noble, but onlyrepparttar grandchildren ofrepparttar 143541 sons (and not ofrepparttar 143542 daughters) are noble. Certainly in most families created noble by means of a letter patent issued by a Monarch, this is by farrepparttar 143543 most common rule of succession.

Cognatic succession is, for practical genealogical purposes, only relevant in a few cases where it can be shown that this was indeedrepparttar 143544 original form of noble succession ofrepparttar 143545 family, and there is an unbroken chain of succession from these (ancient) times down till today.

If we were to discussrepparttar 143546 succession torepparttar 143547 headship of a family, it would be necessary to distinguish betweenrepparttar 143548 two variants of cognatic succession, true and false. True cognatic succession meansrepparttar 143549 firstborn child, whether a son or a daughter, hasrepparttar 143550 best claims. False cognatic succession would mean any son would inherit before a daughter regardless if he was younger, but inrepparttar 143551 absence of sonsrepparttar 143552 oldest daughter would haverepparttar 143553 best claims.

The kingdom of Sweden today has, according to its constitution, true cognatic succession, that isrepparttar 143554 firstborn child ofrepparttar 143555 Monarch hasrepparttar 143556 best claims torepparttar 143557 succession torepparttar 143558 Throne. Some other Monarchies also have this system.

If, for genealogical purposes, you want to find out if a certain noble family as agnatic or cognatic succession, you need to either look atrepparttar 143559 letter patent by whichrepparttar 143560 family was created noble, or, inrepparttar 143561 case ofrepparttar 143562 original nobility, establishrepparttar 143563 terms and conditions for noble succession in use atrepparttar 143564 time and place whererepparttar 143565 family was first recognised as noble. In most cases,repparttar 143566 family members living today will be able to tell you which form of succession they have.
