Parallel - Pre-eminence and Power

First, Shake-Speare:

I do invest you jointly with my power,
Pre-eminence and all the large effects
That troop with majesty.
  King Lear 1.1.130-31

Next, Bacon: 

The crown was not a ceremony or garland, but consisted of
pre-eminence and power.
  Declaration of the Treasons of the Earl of Essex
