Where is my money I am taxing you! I need it A.S.A.P.
Why won't you give me the money I am demanding!? I need it right now or I will destroy the church!
Feudalism is like a pyramid. The top of the pyramid is the king/monarchy, they hold the most power. After the king it is the nobles that come next. The nobles own land the king gave them and is loyal to the king. This is a story of how the king mistreated his power and lost some of it while the nobles gained power.
I feel like the king is abusing his powers! It just feels like he isn't treating anyone right, so we need to stop him!
I agree with what you are saying!
King John taxed the nobles heavily and broke the rights given to the nobles. The nobles were displeased by this heavy taxing.
Sign this document or we will refuse your demands!
King John also argued with the church and took large amounts of money from their churches, missionaries, etc.
The nobles were mad of how much power he had and what he used his power for. They felt like they had to change his ways so they decided to corner King John and make him sign a document where he has to consult the nobles before he does like, anything.
The nobles angrily forced a meeting with King John. With King John cornered he agreed to sign the document since he didn't want to lose the nobles. This action than later caused lords and then later on even the common people to use the rights from the Magna Carta.
This than later caused the lords to gain even more power than the did before. The moment the king stamped the paper was when a portion of power from the king was given to them. The Magna Carta (the document) helped them maintain the power they were given because the Magna Carta protected the lords rights and soon later became people from England's rights. This affected their lives because usually they were pushed around by the king but now the can literally send the king to jail if, the king breaks their rights.
