The Peasants' Revolt started on 30 May 1381, when the tax collector tried 3 times in 4 years when it was normally 1 every 4 years. Enter the capitation tax. A war was created by Ricardo II against France that did not go very well, the reputation of the government and the tax was the last straw.
We need the money that we deserve!
Since the Black Death, peasants had grown increasingly angry that they were still peasants, generally cultivating the land and serving their king.
The taxes are very high, we cannot afford them
The peasants decided to demonstrate so that all men could be free and equal, have less harsh laws, and so that wealth was more distributed. But the monarchy & lords where un agreed so they sed no, all will stay the same.
This is not fair for us
Don't worry honey, everything will be okay
Less complaining, and more working, you have a lot to do.
It did not take long for the peasants to rebel as they could not do it anymore, they did it through a letter, but they did not change anything, they marched to London, where they destroyed the houses of the government ministers.
We deserve a better life
We want Freedom! We want Freedom!
William Walworth, the Mayor of London, attacked and killed Tyler.
You will no longer be a nuisance for me
Please don't hurt me!
I promise you freedom and equality, for all of you
Thank you so much!
Before the army could take revenge, he stepped forward and promised to abolish servitude. The peasants went home, but later the soldiers went through the villages hanging men who participated in the Revolt.
