One may be "banished ... not only from [another's] heart, but from all share of empire"
Metaphor in Context
May the Almighty judge of that! You banished me not only from your heart, but from all share of empire. Until this day--Oh! was that kind or just?--I, the Prince of Spain, was but a stranger, a prisoner in the country over which I shall hereafter rule.--How oft, how oft, my father, have I blushed when from the ambassadors of foreign states, or from general report, I learnt the proceedings of your court! I concealed my feelings beneath affected levity. "The King," said I, "conducts his government with secresy; he prepares for his beloved son a joyful surprise upon his coronation."
