Guillén de Lampart or William Lamport (Wexford, Ireland, ca. 1613-Mexico, 1659), a Mexican Independence precursor (1810), was sentenced to death at the stake by the Inquisition. The real reasons behind his conviction were his subversive activities, and the "Proclamation of rebellion", an address he wrote towards 1642, in which he incites the population of New Spain to an armed uprising, with the intention to become king of Mexico. The paper assesses the rhetorical relevance, within the Proclamation, of the ethical use of argumentative strategies concerning the lineage (genus), as an example of the general relevance of its argumentation.
