Storyboard Text

  • I am so angry! Why should myself and my family be suffering through higher taxes when we were the ones chosen to survive the horrible plague!
  • The peasants were furious at how they were made to pay more taxes than before. They believed that surviving the black death made them special!
  • No more taxes!!!!!
  • The king was only 14 years old, so was being told what to do by advisors. They were the ones who told him to increase the taxes.
  • The peasants decided they were no longer scared to stand up for themselves. A peasant called Wat Tyler led them in what is called 'the peasants' revolt'
  • Much to everyone's surprise, the king agreed to meet the peasants by a river. When they yelled at him to lower the taxes, instead of arguing, he just agreed and said that he would lower the taxes! The peasants were shocked!
  • But the king had lied. There were no changes in the tax system whatsoever; even after he told the peasants that he would change it.
  • The peasants were furious! They returned to London and killed anyone associated with the Royal Government.
