ACCOMPLISHMENTS The Magna Carta was a great acomplishment because it helped lower taxes. The Barons taked a good desicion by making King Jhon sign the Magna Carta.if the Barons wouldn't make King Jhon sign the Magna Carta, the taxes wouldn't decrease for the Knights and today hey would be high. And maybe people couldn't pay it. If they wouldn'y lost in Normandy the feudal and royal rights wouldn't explote.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS What made them famous was that Barons forced King Jhon to sign it. What also helped was that when he lost in the Battle of Bouvines he needed to assemble all the Barons in Runnymede. Pope Innocent annulled it. The child name Henry lll reissued it and it was canceled by the Parliament. Later they secured the government by tyranny.
