  • King John, this is the last straw! Sign this charter!
  • King John of England was a very despicable ruler. His people were not very fond of him. He had lost their land in 1205 and received a papal order forbidding Church services in their kingdom. The nobles became very angry with John and ordered him to sign the Magna Carta also known as the "Great Charter". It protected the rights of the nobles and recognized legal rights of townspeople and the Church. King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215.
  • Ugh! If I must...
  • Crusades were holy wars. The Crusades began around 1905 at the Council of Clermont. Pope Urban II urged Christians to take back the holy land. The Crusades took place over 200 years. The only crusade that came close to achieving its goals was the First Crusade. The Crusades failed to conquer holy lands, but they did result in economic expansion and an increase in trade.
  • Look at all of the new spices, fabrics, and perfumes!
  • The Black Death was a fatal disease that swept Europe in the mid-1300s. It was a bubonic plague meaning it was carried by fleas on rats. There was no medical cure, so people turned to magic, witchcraft, and repenting because they thought it was a punishment from God. The economy took a plunge from the plague because everyone was dying so production declined. Europe recovered from the Black Death in the 1400s.
  • Please God, spare me!!
