Unknown Charter of Liberties


Unknown Charter of Liberties
Document from c.1214/15 which formed some part in the drafting of what became "Magna Carta. Its occasion was possibly the gathering of northern barons at Stamford. It begins with the re-affirmation of the coronation charter of Henry I. It then describes various concessions which King John offered as remedies to the grievances complained of: no arbitrary judgement, amendments to marriage and wardship law, various abuses of relief, restriction on liability for service abroad. These and other matters emerge in the final document known as Magna Carta. The original document is in the Archive Royaume in Paris.
