An open and avowed renunciation of the authority of the government to which one owes allegiance; or the taking of arms traitorously to resist the authority of lawful government; revolt.

Mutiny is an insurrection of soldiers or seamen against the authority of their officers.No sooner is the standard of rebellion displayed, than men of desperate principles resort to it.2. Open resistance to lawful authority.Commission of rebellion, in law, a commission awarded against a person who treats the king's authority with contempt, in not obeying his proclamation according to his allegiance, and refusing to attend his sovereign when required; in which case, four commissioners are ordered to attach him wherever he may be found.
