  Agnatic seniority - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Primogeniture is the practical opposite of agnatic seniority, as younger brothers are excluded in favor of the first-born son and his heirs.
Therefore, "pure" agnatic succession was impossible to maintain, and frequent exceptions were made - eligibility being granted to the eldest sons of sisters or other female relatives of the monarch.
However, the principle of agnatic primogeniture later became dominant, although succession to the throne at the death of the monarch could be claimed by any male blood relative of the Emperor - sons, brothers, uncles or cousins.

Agnatic Succession means basically the complete exclusion of females of the dynasty and their descendants from the succession.
Its one form is agnatic seniority or patrilineal seniority, under which succession to the throne passes to the monarch's next eldest brother (even if the monarch has own children, sons), and only to the monarch's children (to the next generation) after males of the elder generation have all exhausted.
However, later, the agnatic primogeniture became to dominate, although succession to the throne at the death of the monarch could be claimed by any male blood relative of the Emperor: sons, brothers, uncles or cousins.

 Primogeniture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Agnatic primogeniture or patrilineal primogeniture (a form of male primogeniture) is inheritance by the eldest surviving male child.
A case of agnatic primogeniture is exemplified in the French royal milieu, the Salic Law (attributed to the Salian Franks) forbade any inheritance of a crown through the female line.
Later, when lands were strictly divided among noble families and tended to remain fixed, agnatic primogeniture (practically the same as Salic Law) became the most usual: succession going to the eldest son of the monarch; if the monarch had no sons, the throne would pass to the nearest male relative through male line.

However, she and her siblings were not agnatic descendants of the House of Oldenburg/ the Dukes of Schleswig-Holstein, and thus ineligible to inherit the twin duchies, since there existed a number of agnatic lines eligible to inherit those.
The Glucksburg family was a younger agnatic branch of Schleswig-Holstein and of the Royal House of Oldenburg.
Agnatic descendance of Frederick III went extinct when Frederick VII died, and at that point, the succession law promulgated by Frederick III provided a Semi-Salic succession.

 eogen - Patrilineality
Patrilineality (a.k.a agnatic kinship) is a system in which one belongs to one's father's lineage; it generally involves the inheritance of property, names or titles through the male line as well.
In a patrilineal descent system (= agnatic descent), an individual is considered to belong to the same descent group as his or her father.
The fact that the Y chromosome is paternally inherited enables patrilines, and agnatic kinships, of individuals to be traced through genetic analysis.

Agnatic attitudes toward women also have importance for economic life, resulting in the loss to society of their intelligence and labor.
The agnatic logic and political structure, which ranks groups by the number of their males, will have to give way to a different hierarchy, one in which enfranchised women take their rightful place.
Agnatic perceptions inhibit the delivery of community services and the levying, collection, and distribution of taxes; families are distinctly uneager to spend their hard-earned revenues on maintaining inefficient and unnecessary "civil servants."

The Agnatic who get a warning through Agnatic Agnatic are often so concerned with Agnatic the most of their time that they actually miss the very wonders of life.
Under agnatic seniority or patrilineal seniority, succession to the throne passes to the monarch's next-eldest brother (even if the monarch has their private sons), und expeditiously after only to the monarch's children (the closest generation) after males of the eldest bringing forth have superseded exhausted.
However, the principle of agnatic primogeniture posterior became dominant, when succession to the throne at the ruination of the monarch could be demanded by a bit male cruor contingent of the Emperor - sons, brothers, uncles or cousins.

However, they also recognize that (1) ancestral (paraveni) land should not leave the agnatic line associated with a compound on a permanent basis, and (2) if no male heir is available, a female heir residing with her spouse in the compound may serve equally well to continue its "agnatic" line.
This creates a problem of land leaving the "agnatic" house-line and entails the expectation that somehow, this permanent alienation of land will reversed in the next generation or two by a marriage between the heir of this land and a representative of the original house-line from which it was alienated.
Moreover, in the case of Kandyan society, the relationship between agnatic aggregation and the principle of cognatic inheritance is a complex one.

 Vinogradoff, Foundations of Society
Like the Roman gentes, the Greek gene, the Keltic clans and septs, the kindreds of the Teutonic tribes were based on agnatic relationship, that is on relationship through men, the unmarried women remaining in the family of their fathers or brothers while the married women and their offspring joined the families of their husbands.
The mother's kin maintained a certain subsidiary recognition even in later days: it never ceased to be responsible for the woman wich came from it, and always afforded her protection in case of grievous ill-treatment by the husband; a protection wich in sone cases might extend to children.
Nevertheless in the ordinary course of affairs, the father's authority was fully recognised and the families and kindreds of the host must have been chiefly composed of agnatic groups bearing distinctive names from real or supposed ancestors and tracing their descent from him through a succession of males.

If there is one daughter and agnatic granddaughters, the daughter inherits one-half share and the agnatic granddaughters inherit the remaining one-sixth, making a total of two-thirds.
If there are agnatic grandsons amongst the heirs then the principle that the male inherits a portion equivalent to that of two females applies.
In the absence of a child or agnatic grandchild the mother inherits one-third, the share of the father is not mentioned under these circumstances.

 Salic law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-01)
Agnatic succession means succession to the throne or fief going to an agnate of the predecessor; for example, a brother, a son, or nearest male relative through male line (collateral agnate branches, for example cousins, very distant cousins included).
In its usage of hereditary monarchies since 15th century, aiming at agnatic succession, the Salic law is regarded as excluding all females from the succession as well as prohibiting succession rights to transfer through any woman.
At least two systems of hereditary succession are direct and full applications of the Salic Law: agnatic seniority and agnatic primogeniture.

The close linkage of rules of exogamy to the principle of agnatic descent is seen in the fact that no distinction is made between it and other ties of consanguineous kinship.
It (the principle of agnatic descent) establishes the range of bonds and the order of corporations which will be involved.
They are, however, all linked through common application of the principle of agnatic descent, and indeed represent a series of gradations in its application rather than a set of distinct principles.

 Chapter 4: Islamic and Christian Spain in the Early Middle Ages
In such a system, endogamous marriages are viewed as the ideal because through endogamy power, prestige, and wealth are retained within the agnatic group rather than shared with a competing group into which a daughter might marry, with parallel-cousin marriages (the wedding of one's son with the daughter of the paternal uncle) preferred.
Prestige and power in segmentary societies is predicated upon the strength and cohesiveness of agnatic groups, and the political strategy of such groups is to attain the necessary cohesion through the practice of endogamy and through constant testing of the group's strength in competition with rival groups.
Aside from the agnatic character of noble families, what primarily characterized them was their ability to control resources, both human and natural, through the exercise of immunities, taxation, and monopolies.

 THE ISLAMIC LAWS OF INHERITANCE
The husband, another Quranic heir, inherits one-half in the absence of a child or agnatic grandchild and one-quarter in the presence of a child or agnatic grandchild.
The share of the wife is one-quarter in the absence of a child or agnatic grandchild and one-eighth in the presence of a child or agnatic grandchild.
In this situation all the shares are abated proportionately by the doctrine of al-awl which involves decreasing the fractional shares to a common denominator, and increasing the denominator in order to make it equal to the sum of the numerators.

It was adopted from Prussia, by which Japan was greatly influenced in the 1870s.
Strict agnatic primogeniture is, however, directly contradictory to several old Japanese traditions of imperial succession.
The controlling principles and their interaction were apparently very complex and sophisticated, leading to even idiosyncratic outcomes.

Having said this, however, there is no doubt that in the case of south Slav societies the agnatic emphasis at the ideological and 'formal' level is quite strong and where I conducted fieldwork descent reckoning along agnatic lines was usually eight to ten generations deep.
This is in radical contrast to the situation even amongst the most agnatically oriented Greek communities where a daughter's children and son's children are equally their grandparents' grandchildren and equally claimed.
That is. where women have been found to have authority or power in south Slav societies described as agnatic, it is frequently depicted as problematic, extraordinary or even inexplicable, given what is presumed to be the actuality of gender relations as suggested by the formal kinship structures and sentiments.

Accordingly, before we take up the various extensions of agnatic bonds synchronically to collectivities, let us look at the rules which govern inheritance, with its sub-categories of membership and succession.
The same rule and procedures apply whether the second man (the 'rearer' of the child) is the child's mother's second husband, or one of her agnatic kinsmen, the child's mother's brother, for example.
This is true even of assimilated lineages (those descended from a slave or for another reason not acknowledged as a common ancestry with the lineage to which they are linked) or attached lineages (where common ancestry is subject to the interdictions of illegitimacy).

 Abstracts, Douglas R. White
Agnatic descent, however, is not the principle by which sidedness is maintained, since daughters can be heirs to agnatic estates if male heirs are lacking, and there exists a significant option of propertied daughters taking the role of a male in the marriage exchange system.
Such marriages, when they involve transmission of agnatic property to the daughter (in the absence of sons), provide the key to understanding how an emergent network structure of dual organization is possible based on flexible marriage strategies rather than prescriptive descent rules for matrimonial moieties.
Furthermore, property that is temporarily alienated from an imperfectly agnatic residential group because of inheritance devolution to daughters can be brought into the group through the combination of subcaste endogamy and dual organization in which "agnatic" property devolving through females can first pass to an opposing "side" but then back to its "side" of origin.
