The Story Behind Magna Carta

Henry III once again reissued the charter to bring home newer forms of taxes, when he met with scarcity of funding. Edward I, his son carried out a repeat of the event in 1297 and he went further legislatively and incorporated it into English statute law. Politics can be thought off as incomplete in England, without it because it is such a huge portion of that aspect of our history. Each monarch that came to power renewed the charter, and after a popularity peak for the English parliament and a slacking of political cultural relevance for the charter, the Magna Carta grew very popular in the 16th Century. Many people, such as lawyers and historians began to believe, during this time, that an ancient document dating from the times of the Anglo-Saxons have always protected freedoms of the English.
