  • King Jon was not ever supposed to have any power at all, his brothers kept on dying so he eventually became the king of England
  • Barons, I have summoned you today to tell you that we must take action, we cannot let the king continue bullying us, we must make a document of rules and force the king to sign it, we will call this document the Magna Carta.

  • Sir, could you please stop raising the taxes, it is unfair, us barons are barley earning enough tax from our towns to pay your tax, if you dont stop we will take action!
  • No way! I am King Jon king of Egland, I do what I want, when I want and where I want. Guards through these to peasents in prison!
  • Taxes being at rediculous prices effected everyone, not just the Barons.
  • Unfortunratly, the king has not accepted our request to lower the taxes, so because of this taxes will be raised by 10%.
  • We are focing you to sign this document. This document says that nobody is above the law, everybody has the right to a fair trial, it as many rules.
  • The Magna Carta still exists today in the Australian Parliament House. King jon Broke most of these rules very soon after signing the document, a few years later it was recreated and is still used today.
