The Story Behind Magna Carta

The Magna Carta is a prized charter, written by the Archbishop of Canterbury to strike a peace deal between a king who wasn’t well-liked and barons who were rebellious. Upon inquisition, the charter reveals that it promised to uphold church rights, safeguarding barons from being imprisoned illegally, provide accessible roadways to justice and the setting of a cap on feudal payments to the Crown. Made possible because of twenty-five barons initially, the document was later cast aside by both parties because they found it tough to keep their promises.
