Magna Carta: The Making and Legacy of the Great Charter

By the summer of 1215 King John of England had lost control of his kingdom. In June his rebellious barons forced him to attach his regal seal - under oath - to a remarkable document.
The so-called ‘Great Charter', established an Englishman's right to habeas corpus and set limits to the exercise of royal power. For the first time an English king had agreed to a document that limited his powers by law and protected their rights.
