Rules of noble succession

Rules of noble succession by Jan-Olov von Wowern

Let me first say thatrepparttar rules of noble succession, as they apply to a specific noble family, can normally not be changed. They are determined either by:

1)repparttar 143541 rules of succession laid down inrepparttar 143542 letter patent which was given torepparttar 143543 family member who was first ennobled (for patent nobility)


2)repparttar 143544 rules of succession in use atrepparttar 143545 time andrepparttar 143546 place whererepparttar 143547 family was first recognised as noble (for original nobility)

It follows that inrepparttar 143548 case of patent nobilityrepparttar 143549 rules of succession could only be changed byrepparttar 143550 conferring authority,repparttar 143551 reigning Monarch or his or hers successors (ifrepparttar 143552 constitution would allow for such changes).

Inrepparttar 143553 case ofrepparttar 143554 original nobility in my opinionrepparttar 143555 rules of succession cannot ever be changed, not even by a successor ofrepparttar 143556 reigning Monarch who once recognisedrepparttar 143557 family as noble, becauserepparttar 143558 rules of succession were in most cases not atrepparttar 143559 Monarch's disposition to change. Hence, for all practical purposes and certainly forrepparttar 143560 study of genealogy, we may assume that noble families are bound by certain rules of succession that must be adhered to.

When we discuss succession, we should define whether we meanrepparttar 143561 succession torepparttar 143562 nobility (that is, which family members inrepparttar 143563 next generation will inheritrepparttar 143564 name,repparttar 143565 arms andrepparttar 143566 quality of continuingrepparttar 143567 family line), andrepparttar 143568 succession torepparttar 143569 headship of a noble family. As implied byrepparttar 143570 title, in this article I will mainly discussrepparttar 143571 succession of nobility inrepparttar 143572 general and collective sense.

Noble succession is either agnatic or cognatic. In my genealogy book "Find Your Noble Ancestors!", I have defined those terms as follows: "Agnatic succession: succession torepparttar 143573 nobility ... continues only onrepparttar 143574 spear (male) side, from father to son." "Cognatic succession: in many countries this wasrepparttar 143575 original form of succession amongrepparttar 143576 ancient nobility, meaningrepparttar 143577 nobility ... continued on bothrepparttar 143578 spear (male) and distaff (female) side in parallel lines".
