Throughout history there have been many important documents that have altered and bettered our world.

This document has also set a foundation for the United States of America government, which lead our people to follow England and create our own Bill of Rights.
Soon after, King John went back to battle against France and needed the money from his vassals, the Barons.

The North was indeed largely Catholic and they hoped if England was to get a catholic queen in the form of Mary Stuart then the situation for them would become better, not only religiously but politically as well as socially.
Although, he was greatly helping France, he still needed to find a way to develop a stronger connection and peace between Protestant and Catholics, who were near enemies at the time. One thing he did was converting to Catholicism, which would develop a better relationship with the pope. Another thing he did was appoint a man named Sully to be his chief minister. Sully was a devout protestant, so this decision would create a better relationship between Protestants, Catholics, and the monarchy. As all of this was happening, henry and Sully created a reform called “the Edict of Nantes” which would give more freedom to protestants as they were not accepted as much as Catholics at the time.

The Assignats that the State had introduced were rapidly deflating, and some store owners would not even accept them.

His Father Henry II passed away and it was then that his heir John took over. King John in many people's eyes was a king who exploited and abused the traditional revenue. Due to the fact that he was constantly battling France trying to recover the land France took away from him because they thought of him as a weak king, England began to lose money; money that was coming in through taxes from France was no longer available. The fact that John could not gain the land in France and was losing money angered him. He then decided that if he could not gain the land back which he lost he was not going to keep losing money so the King decided to raise the taxes on his people.

But as France gained a national identity, the English began to suffer defeats. In May of 1337, the nations were looking for national identity and were attempting to become stronger.

Although the Church England was no longer in compliance with the Roman Catholic Church, it nevertheless, remained Roman Catholic in looks and feel.
