800th Anniversary of
Magna Carta

The Year 2015 was the 800th Anniversary of the Sealing of the Magna Carta

The year 2015 was the 800th Anniversary of the presentation of the Magna Carta by the Lords of Britain to King John at a place called Runnymede.

Margaret Ryan Kreeger was invited by the American Bar Association (ABA) to participate in the rededication of the Monument sponsored by the ABA at Runnymede.


The Carta was among the texts which profoundly influenced the formation of Democracies around the world and is recognized to have particularly influenced the founding Fathers who signed the Constitution of the United States.



Since the Lords were a contentious lot, the boggy meadow of Runnymede was selected as the meeting place so as to discourage any major potential conflagrations.


King John reluctantly accepted and signed (sealed) the Carta which was then promptly annulled by the Pope who alone reserved the right to bestow divine rights upon Kings. Human rights were deemed invalid before the Vicar of the Lord.



Nevertheless, the Lords persisted and the Carta was eventually accepted by the King and thus began the secular influence on governance in the middle ages.
