Rebellion, as most words in any language, is polysemic, that is, it will convey one or more meanings according to the actual verbal context and/or the situational context. A basic dictionary usually refers to 1) the refusal to obey a de jure or de facto authority, 2) a group of rebels. But the corresponding verb »to rebel« also means »to protest«. As in any semantic study, contradictions are apparent: when you rebel in the first sense, you seem to disobey a »legitimate« or established authority, whether a person or a government. So rebellion extends from a non docile attitude to insurgency, through resistance and revolt.
