📄Magna Carta📠

🙀Before every other one🙀

I think this is the real document or at least a piece of it !

The manga Carter is the first document. It was signed June 15 between the barons of Medieval England and King John. Magna Carta is a latin word, it means Great Charter. Magna Carter is one of the most important documents of Medieval England.

The Magna  was signed  between the feudal barons and King John at Runnymede near Windsor Castle. The document was a series of written promises between the subjects  and him. The king would govern England and deal with his people according to the customs of feudal Magna Carta. It was an attempt by the barons to stop a king - in this case John - abusing his power with the people of England suffering.

1. First, that we have granted to God, and by this present charter have confirmed for us and our heirs in perpetuity, that the English Church shall be free, and shall have its rights undiminished, and its liberties unimpaired. That we wish this so to be observed, appears from the fact that of our own free will, before the outbreak of the present dispute between us and our barons, we granted and confirmed by charter the freedom of the Church's elections - a right reckoned to be of the greatest necessity and importance to it - and caused this to be confirmed by Pope Innocent III. This freedom we shall observe ourselves, and desire to be observed in good faith by our heirs in perpetuity. We have also granted to all free men of our realm, for us and our heirs for ever, all the liberties written out below, to have and to keep for them and their heirs, of us and our heirs:

2. If any earl, baron, or other person that holds lands directly of the Crown, for military service, shall die, and at his death his heir shall be of full age and owe a `relief', the heir shall have his inheritance on payment of the ancient scale of `relief'. That is to say, the heir or heirs of an earl shall pay for the entire earl's barony, the heir or heirs of a knight l00s. at most for the entire knight's `fee', and any man that owes less shall pay less, in accordance with the ancient usage of `fees'

3. But if the heir of such a person is under age and a ward, when he comes of age he shall have his inheritance without `relief' or fine
