Time and again we come back to this debate. Arrêt le Maistre denies the throne to “foreign princes,” calling it “contrary to the Salic law.” But the question is, what did the Parlement of Paris mean by “foreign prince.” We, of course, contend that the words should be read by their plain, natural meaning — … More What is a “Foreign Prince”?
