This week’s BTN I watch the episode in the Magna Carta. This is what I learnt.


King John wasn’t supposed to have any power. He was the youngest of a very large royalty family. He raised the taxes that the barons [rich people] had to pay eleven times.  He lost a lot of his empire in the northern France and spent a decade fighting expensive wars to win it back. I understand why the barons wanted to make something like the Magna Carta so King John couldn’t take their stuff  and why the Magna Carta hep make laws and the universal declaration of human rights. Why did they call it the Magna Carta?
