A lovely blog post on Adverse Possession, Shakespeare, and the nature of the English Monarch. Here's the first paragraph:
Today I wrap up teaching one of my favorite subjects in Property (ok I like them all) — Adverse Possession. One of the topics we cover is adverse possession claims against the state. Traditionally, Adverse Possession claims against the state did not stand. This tradition in the common law stretches to the concept of the King’s duality, the King as Corporation as F.W. Maitland would refer to it, or simply The King’s Two Bodies as eloquently stated by Ernst Kantorowicz.
