Coronation Anecdotes; Or, Select and Interesting Fragments of English Coronation Ceremonies
Dodo Press, 2009 - 196 páginas
"The Regalia of England are the symbols of a monarchical authority that has been transmitted by coronation ceremonies for upwards of ten centuries. But the incorporation of England, Scotland, and Ireland, into one united kingdom, - an event peculiar to the coronation of George IV, to have recognised, -has connected the history of the Imperial Regalia with some tales of legendary lore, the truth of which, if this circumstance does not demonstrate, be assured, gentle reader, nothing will. Irish records are said to add at least another thousand years of substantial history to the honours of that solid regal seat, or coronation chair, in which our monarchs are both anointed and crowned: while some of our own "honest chroniclers" assign to it a still more marvellous antiquity.
