    Notes 
    • John Lackland, so-called because he inherited no lands from his father.
          Said to have been a "bad son, bad subject, bad husband, bad father, and bad sovereign." John was excommunicated by Pope Innocent. John was forced to sign the Magna Carta at Runnymede, the English declaration of liberty, and died shortly after.
          King John (Lackland) had been forced to sign the Magna Charta at Runnymeade (loc. between Windsor and Staines).  The English Barons reaffirmed the traditional feudal privileges signed by Henry I. Although he signed the Charta, King John immediately appealed to Pope Innocent III, who issued a bull annulling the charter.  King John hired French mercenaries, who landed in England in January 1216 to fight the Barons.
          King John came down with dysentery in October 1216, after crushing English resistance in the north of England.  He crossed the Wash River and went to Newark Castle, where he died 19 October 1216.  Age 38. He was succeeded by his 9-year-old son, who became Henry III.  His regent was William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke. (Trager's  page 103)
