|Abstract||This article was presented as an historical analysis of Jeffrey Goldswothy's book, The Sovereignty of Parliament (OUP 1999) at a Symposium organized by the Australian Society of Legal Philosophy. It takes issue with Goldsworthy's definition of 'parliament' as 'the King in Parliament' and focusses on the critical role of the monarch as an integral part of the legal Parliament. It argues that restrictions on the power of both monarch and of the Parliament are placed by the terms of the oath of governance (or coronation oath) so that Parliament may not enact whatever it wishes i.e. it is not sovereign. Rather ultimate sovereignty is to be found in the terms of the sovereign's oath of governance. It examines the historical record to support the argument.|
