  3. 3. What is it? <ul><li>Originally written in latin a document that king john was forced into signing. </li></ul><ul><li>It was a charter of rights that reduced the power of the king to the power of the parliament </li></ul><ul><li>It then became the building blocks of English citizen’s rights. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Outcome of the Magna Carta <ul><li>If king John didn ’ t accept who knows what would of happened but King John knew had to come to agreement. </li></ul><ul><li>After agreement many great laws came into place and are still in place today </li></ul><ul><li>Essentially it made every free man not be able to be punished except through the law of land. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Timeline of the Magna Carta <ul><li>It was first issued in 1215 and was revised later on in that century. </li></ul><ul><li>The first charter was passed in 1225 </li></ul><ul><li>The final version was last revised in 1297 and it is still basically the same document today. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Clause 61 <ul><li>In the 1215 document it was a large section which ascertained that any time a group of 25 barons could meet and choose to overrule the king. </li></ul><ul><li>If the king challenged the barons they were able to seize his castles and possessions. </li></ul><ul><li>Clause 61 was based on a medieval practice called distraint. </li></ul><ul><li>Basically clause 61 was made up to overthrow the king. </li></ul>
