The Coronation Oath Act 1688 (1 Will & Mary c 6) is an Act of the Parliament of England. It was passed in 1689 (New Style; 1688 Old Style). The preamble noted that "by the Law and Ancient Usage of this Realm" the monarchs of England had taken a solemn oath at their coronation to maintain the statute laws and customs of the country and of its inhabitants, but the text of this oath had become partly meaningless over time, "framed in doubtful Words and Expressions with relation to ancient Laws and Constitutions at this time unknown". It established a single uniform oath to be taken by future monarchs at their coronation, and also established that this oath was to be taken by William III and Mary II when they were crowned. The oath was fundamentally different from the traditional coronation oa

  • Der englische Krönungseid (Coronation Oath) ist ein Eid des britischen Monarchen und geht mindestens bis auf die Krönung Edgars in der Bath Abbey im Jahre 973 zurück. Im Vereinigten Königreich muss der Monarch in Bezug auf seine Thronbesteigung keinen formalen Eid leisten. Er oder sie muss jedoch einen Eid bezüglich der Sicherheit der Church of Scotland leisten. Bei einer Krönung leistet der Monarch gewöhnlich einen Eid, da eine Krönung aber unwesentlich ist, müssen die Monarchen keinen dergleichen Eid leisten, um ihre Pflichten zu erfüllen, wie im Fall von Eduard VIII.

  • The Coronation Oath Act 1688 (1 Will & Mary c 6) is an Act of the Parliament of England. It was passed in 1689 (New Style; 1688 Old Style). The preamble noted that "by the Law and Ancient Usage of this Realm" the monarchs of England had taken a solemn oath at their coronation to maintain the statute laws and customs of the country and of its inhabitants, but the text of this oath had become partly meaningless over time, "framed in doubtful Words and Expressions with relation to ancient Laws and Constitutions at this time unknown". It established a single uniform oath to be taken by future monarchs at their coronation, and also established that this oath was to be taken by William III and Mary II when they were crowned. The oath was fundamentally different from the traditional coronation oath which recognized laws as being the grant of the King whereas the Act's oath sought to bind the King to rule according to the law agreed in parliament. The oath was shorter than the one used in 1660, removing a number of awkward phrases and references to past monarchs; a significant alteration was the explicit inclusion of an oath to maintain "the true Profession of the Gospel and the Protestant Reformed Religion Established by Law", rather than the somewhat more vague promise to "Protect and Defend the Bishops and Churches under [my] Government." Section 2 of the Act of Settlement 1701 reiterated the oath. This Act mostly remains in force as of 2019. (Section 4, from "bee it" to "enacted that" was repealed by section 1(1) of, and Part I of the Schedule to, the Statute Law Revision Act 1888.) The Scottish Claim of Right Act 1689 says that the monarch cannot "exercise the regall power untill he or she swear the Coronation Oath."
