'''Mutiny''' is a [[criminal conspiracy]] among a group of people (typically members of the [[military]] or the [[crew]] of any ship, even if they are civilians) to openly oppose, change, or overthrow a lawful authority to which they are subject. The term is commonly used for a [[rebellion]] among members of the military against their superior officers, but it can also occasionally refer to any type of rebellion against lawful authority or governances.
 
During the [[Age of Discovery]], mutiny particularly meant open rebellion against a ship's [[Captain (nautical)|captain]]. This occurred, for example, during [[Ferdinand Magellan|Ferdinand Magellan's]] journeys around the world, resulting in the killing of one mutineer, the [[Capital punishment|execution]] of another, and the [[marooning]] of others; on [[Henry Hudson]]'s ''Discovery'' resulting in Hudson and others being set adrift in a boat; and the notorious [[mutiny on the Bounty|mutiny on the ''Bounty'']].
