A supplanter means someone who takes the place of another. It is found in ancient literature and in the Bible and can be used today to refer to governments that have overthrown another. The word has a negative connotation and can imply there was deceit or force involved. In a Biblical context, Jacob was considered a supplanter as he tricked his father out of his older brother’s birthright.

Jacob was the younger twin brother of Esau and son of Isaac. The names James and Jacob are related through their Latin roots and both can still trace this meaning through history.
