This chapter focuses on the Duke of York and the crisis over the succession, which was precipitated in part by Oates' allegations. It sets concerns over a potential Catholic successor in several contexts, such as analysing the rhetoric of debate both in Parliament and on the printed page, and placing the succession issue in context of the Duke's periods of exile between 1679 and 1682.

Keywords:   Duke of York, succession, Catholic successor, rhetoric, debate, print, exile
