Origin of Depose
Recorded since c.1300, from Old French deposer, from de- "down" + poser "to put, place". Deposition (1494 in the legal sense) belongs to deposit, but that related word and depose became totally confused
Middle English deposen from Old French deposer alteration (influenced by poser to put) of Latin dēpōnere to put down depone
