John Bampton arrived in Essex on the 30th May 1381, attempting to collect poll taxes. The peasants weren't having it.
I can't pay these retched taxes!!
It's time to pay your poll taxes to help us fight the French. King's order!!
Wat Tyler & John Ball thought Richard II's poll taxed were preferential and discriminatory and began a rebellion.
How the heck is this far?!!
The only option is to start a rebellion!
The rebellions of Essex set fire to government buildings legal documents of law
Richard II and the mayor of London met and spitefully murdered Tyler
You shall die, Wat Tyler, for what you have brought upon the country
Richard eventually came to his senses and changed the rules
I understand that this is unfair and so I will abolish serfdom and decrease taxes to its former price
The king sent out his soldiers to kill all the peasants who rebelled against his decisison
Soldiers! Round up all your men and assassinate all peasants who rebelled against my decision
