Who founded sovereign immunity?

Sovereign Immunity originated in early English law. It is the legal doctrine that the sovereign or state can commit no legal wrong. Thus they are immune from criminal prosecution and civil suits. Today, many jurisdictions have limited the protection provided by sovereign immunity, and/or added exceptions to the rule. In some jurisdictions the state can be sued for certain actions but the damage awards are limited.
