King John puts his seal on the Magna Carta
Art, Literature, and Film History. But what do you really know about this 'Great Charter of Liberty'? In England was in political turmoil. King John had become vastly unpopular, thanks to bitter disagreements with the church and a series of high taxes to fund ongoing war with France. An alliance of disgruntled barons and important members of the clergy had been mounting pressure on the king for years.
At the start of the barons seized control of London - giving him no choice but to negotiate. Events came to a head in June, when King John finally met with the barons to hear their demands. By 15 June he agreed to seal the proposed 'Great Charter of Liberty', enshrining their rights in law. Runnymede may be the site of Magna Carta, but there are also a number of other memorials to the struggle for liberty to look out for.
