What rights did the magna carta guarantee?
The Magna Carta was a medieval document signed by King John on June 15th, 1215, that guaranteed all sovereigns and people in England would be under the rule of law.
The right to a trial by jury, the right to be consulted before the implementation of higher taxes, the right to life and liberty, and also the right to inherit property.
Magna Carta is one of the most important legal documents in history. It created the idea that everybody is subjected to the law and that even kings have limits and have to obey the law and this means that are certain rights of individuals that the king cannot remove, such as the right to justice and fair trial.
The Magna Carta was signed because a group of barons rebelled against King John of England and demanded that he signed the document so they could have those rights reassured. It has 63 clauses, but the third one is one of the most important ones:
“No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land.
“To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.”
i'm fairly sure that the correct answers are 2 and 3.
i used both my knowledge of world history and the process of elimination to obtain these answers. option 1 cannot be a possible selection because the mandate of heaven belongs to ancient chinese philosophical belief. option 4 sounds like it would benefit the region than detriment it. however, both 2 and 3 explain a potential reason for what could have contributed to the fall of the roman empire.
hope this ! if i were you, i'd get a second opinion, because i haven't taken this course for a year. best of luck!
