   Post Man (Newspaper) - May 23, 1802, London, Middlesex                                Numb. 91? Y Y Y And the Hiftorical Account., &c. From �S>aCUtftap May 23, co XuetDap May .26, ijoz. Naples, April 2^. Reat preparations are making here for the publick Entry of che King of Spain^h.ldx is fixed to the 15th of the next month, and the Cardinal of Pourbinh daily ex-' _    ptQei hereto aflift in a great Council, that is to beheld Concerning the Invefliture,which our Kings have hitherto received from the Popef,and which novf feems to draw near an end. 'Tis reported, char the King intends to have the advice of the chief of.the .Nobility of this Kingdom, and afterwards demand the Aid -Inveftitme of the Pope, with this Declaration, thai unlcfs the fame is immediately granred, his M;j.-fty and his SuccefTora will henceforth think themfelves fiee from any Tribute, or o-ther acknowledgment to the'See of Row? i and we hear fome Civilians are appointed to examine the Validity of the pretentions of the Pope upon this Kingdom and Sicily That inquiry will be very cu-ri;::�, and 'f we may believe fome Learned men, the Pope oiight to prevent the fume, for their Title will appear as gronndlefs, as their pretentions of che like narure upon fome other Kingdoms, who have fince aff. rled rheir own Independency.The firfi inftance of the fuDmiffian of our Princes to the See of Rome hspned in the year 'of 9. when Robert Guijtardu* of the Norm in Race, Du^e of Apulia and Caubria, made him-felf VaiTil to Pope Nicolas ad, and obtained the In-veftituvt of his Domini-ns, upon a yearly Tribute, w-jich he obliged himfelf to pay to the Rowan Pontiffs. Kis Sjccc^ois continued the fame, but in the year 11 31 Roger Cou.ir ofSidlj, Duke of Apulia, Cala* hria,&c. obui.-.cd from Pope Anacletut the jd,ch�Title of King ofbotfi ZLilys, and this was chs firft King of this Country. He p3;d Homage co the See of Rome, and a yearly T.-ibute for the fame. The Popes hive fince that time chimed the Soyeraignty of this Kingdom, and prefer.Jed to difpofe thereof as they pleaied, A-drimi rhe 4th excommunicated Williafn xha id, and compelled the Nobility to take in Oath of Fidelity to him,*nd Pope Celeflinus id deprived of the Royal Dig-nicy Kinij Tawed, conferring the fame on Henry 6th. Pope XJrbav.w the6:h having himself Crowned Charles of Durazxo King of Naples, undertook afterwards to deprive him of his Royal Title : and Pope Martin the 5th deprived Queen Johanna, declaring Levis Duke of Anjou, King of NapUs, which brought numberless Calamities upon this unfortunate Kingdom. All the World knows how many Wars enfusd thereupon, between the Houfes of Arragon and the Kings of France, whereof Charles the 8th and Levis the rath were Crowned Kings of Naples, having obtained the Inveftirnre of the Pope ; but fince that time the Princes of rhe Houfe of Arragon and Aujina have poffefljd this Kingdom, paying all the while a yearly Tribute for rhs fame. That Tribute has varied very much, for fomecimes our former Kings hive p?id 48000 Ducats a year, and at other times 40090, bur the late Kings of Spain have paid but 6000 Defeats and a whire Spanifh Gennet, which the S?aniih Ambaffadors ufe to prefent to the Pope in very great Ceremony.  Noewithfhndioglhis long pofTefJIon, they begirt to talk here with great con ficfence againft the Validity of the Preftrtfioris1 of the SeeofRswe upon this Kingdom, and 'tis likely that rheywiflfhew tl,at rhefitft of Homage paid co the Pope by .Robert Guijcardus,  and ffre ^continuation -'{ ^thereof* having been an efFedV of v'iofjnce'iind in-jufKcej the farnecarrmdr make a goodJ Tit*le? accord- iing'tb fome Maxims of the Civil Law/ His Ma-jefty has declared his Intentions ct) going for the Mitfatw by the latrti inrf cftfc next mtMthf,-'and oH ' 4��s are givenfor the tranfpcrtipg cf ;p66� Veapolu tans from hence to; Fy�s/.
