The doctrine of the divine right of kings establishes that the King is the ultimate authority, that he derives this right directly from God, and no one, often not even the church, can question his authority or rule; only God can judge a King. To oppose the King is to oppose God, possibly a sacrilegious act, if the King says that it is; he can let his family and friends “off the hook” of course. If that doesn’t scare you into submission, regular drawing and quartering of dissenters as public spectacle should do the trick nicely.
