“The duty of a Christian king is to judge no one corruptly, to defend widows, orphans and strangers, and to abolish immoral marriages. He must drive out those who practice magic, and who murder their kin, or commit perjury. He must feed the needy, and have old and experienced men for his counselors, appointing honest servants. He will be answerable on the Day of Judgement for the crimes of his servants done in his name.”
(Old English Coronation Order, prior to the Western Schism)
