Yes...the Articles of the Barons will surely put King John in his place.
You will sign the Magna Carta!
Oh, okay then...
The people under King John's rule were fed up with the heavy taxes, lesser jobs, harsh punishments, and unfair rights. So, they put themselves to work on how to find a solution to this disaster.
They came up what was first called the Articles of the Barons, but later changed to what is now known as the Magna Carta, which would set limitations to the power of the king. Such limitations would include not putting out heavy taxes on the Barons.
We believe in majority rule, speedy trial, trial by jury, and rights to due process of law.
This change was executed on June 15 1215. The Barons forced King John into signing the Magna Carta, by threatening to kill him. This bluff freaked the king out enough that he did indeed sign the great charter.
King John was the first ruler to be set to these limitations which the Magna Carter depicted.
In the 1600s, British settlers came with more ideas that added onto and improved the Magna Carta to a higher degree.
