The Treason Act 1702 (1 Anne Stat. 2 c. 21) is an Act of the Parliament of England, passed to enforce the line of succession to the English throne (today the British throne), previously established by the Bill of Rights 1689 and the Act of Settlement 1701. The Act makes it treason to "endeavour to deprive or hinder any person who shall be the next in succession to the crown for the time being ... from succeeding after the decease of her Majesty (whom God long preserve) to the imperial crown of this realm and the dominions and territories thereunto belonging".

  • Il Treason Act 1702 (1 Anne stat. 2 c. 21) fu un decreto del Parlamento inglese passato per assicurare la successione al trono inglese precedentemente stabilita dall'Act of Settlement del 1701. Il decreto stabiliva che era alto tradimento (e quindi punibile con la morte) ostacolare la successione al trono di una persona designata alla successione dopo la morte del re. Il decreto fu passato dal Parlamento inglese ma fu più tardi esteso alla Scozia nel 1708, in seguito agli Acts of Union 1707 dei 2 regni il precedente anno. Nel 1998 la pena di morte fu abolita e la pena massima divenne l'ergastolo

  • The Treason Act 1702 (1 Anne Stat. 2 c. 21) is an Act of the Parliament of England, passed to enforce the line of succession to the English throne (today the British throne), previously established by the Bill of Rights 1689 and the Act of Settlement 1701. The Act makes it treason to "endeavour to deprive or hinder any person who shall be the next in succession to the crown for the time being ... from succeeding after the decease of her Majesty (whom God long preserve) to the imperial crown of this realm and the dominions and territories thereunto belonging". Originally a capital offence, the penalty was reduced in 1998 to life imprisonment. Although the Act was passed by the English Parliament, it was later extended to Scotland by the Treason Act 1708, following the Union of the two kingdoms in the previous year. The Parliament of Ireland passed a law to the same effect in 1703, the Treason Act (Ireland) 1703 (c.5). This is still in force in Northern Ireland.
