    Anthony Burgoyne
  • 2. When it was made
    The Magna Carta was originally issued in the year 1215
    And later reissued in the 13th century
  • 3. Why it was made
    The magna carta was made to limit the powers of the monarchy.
    And to preserve the basic legal rights of all free men in England.
    It was made after a rebellion in 1215 against King John of England, a corrupt, absolute monarch who angered all those under the influence of his power.

    The barons, bishops and abbots joined together to create the magna carta

  • 7. The Magna Carta Today
    Although most of the charter's ideas were revised or have since been repealed, the Magna Carta's fundamental tenets provided the outline for modern democracies.
    Taking a cue from the document more than five centuries later, American revolutionaries incorporated many of the Magna Carta's basic ideas into another important piece of parchment – the U.S. Constitution.
