A Proclamation when the King was declared King of Ireland. [Act 33 H. VIII. c. 1.]
Honorable Assembly! Ye shall understand that the triumph shewed here this day is done principally to give thanks to God of his great benefits shewed to our most noble and victorious King Henry the Eighth, and to declare our own gladness and joy that his Majesty is now, as he hath always of right been, acknowledged by the Nobility and Commons of this his realm of Ireland to be King of the same, and he and his heirs to be named, reputed, and taken for evermore Kings of Ireland." It is agreed by the Deputy, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and the Commons assembled in this Parliament that all prisoners of what estate, degree, and condition they be, "detained for murder, felony, or other offence which the said Lord Deputy may pardon, (treason, wilful murder, rape, and debt only excepted,)" shall be liberated, and have their pardons frank and free. "And God save the King's Majesty, King Henry the Eighth, King of England, Ireland, and France, Defender of the Faith, and in earth Supreme Head of the Church of England and Ireland!
