Unseated from the said seat (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

thrown

Here is my best explanation:

'unseated' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'the said seat' is the subsidiary indication.

'the said' shows a homophone (sound like).

'seat' becomes 'throne' (throne is a kind of seat).

'throne' is a homophone of 'thrown'.

'from' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for thrown that I've seen before include "Flung", "Cast", "baffled", "Disconcerted; chucked", "Having been projected through the air", "Unsettled", "given up intentionally", "Rabindranath ---, Indian sage", "Confused; chucked" and "put out".)
