That's it! There aren't many peasants left now. Let's start a revolt!
In 1381, the peasants in Essex started a revolt as the government created poll tax. The peasants were very unhappy, so they gathered together as many peasants as they could to march into London.
LOOK! Someone has opened the gate! CHARGE!
The peasants marched to Canterbury, more peasants joining on the journey. They stopped in Canterbury for a while, collecting as much food and water as they could.
What?! They have killed my main minister? That's it! I've had enough!
They met a peasant called Wat Tyler, who joined them and became their leader. He organised the revolt, and appealed to many others to join the protest for freedom.
What d'yer want?
Let's talk....... GUARDS! SEIZE HIM!
When they arrived in London, they found that someone had left the gate open. At once, they charged through and targeted the houses of the important men who had made the peasants the lowest ranking in the society.
When Richard III heard about the peasants killing his ministers, he decided to come up with a plan to capture Wat Tyler, the leader.
Richard III signalled for Wat to come and talk with him. After Wat met with him alone, he arranged for 2 guards to sneak up on him. As they were talking, the guards pounced on him and soon executed him. With their leader gone, the peasants soon gave up and returned to the countryside.
