Definition
open rebellion against authority — especially by seamen or soldiers against their officers
  • These late eclipses in the sun and moon portend no good to us: though the wisdom of nature can reason it thus and thus, yet nature finds itself scourged by the sequent effects: love cools, friendship falls off, brothers divide: in cities, mutinies; in countries, discord; in palaces, treason; and the bond cracked 'twixt son and father.
    1.2 — Act 1 Scene 2 — A Hall in the Earl of Gloster's Castle (58% in)
