Portrait of King John, England

Creative #: 102521957
John (1166-1216) King of England, reigned from 6 April 1199 until his death. He acceded to the throne as the younger brother of King Richard I, who died. During his lifetime John acquired two epithets. One was 'Lackland' (French: Sans Terre), because, as his father's youngest son, he did not inherit land out of his family's holdings. he is perhaps best-known for having acquiesced to the barons of English nobility to seal Magna Carta, a document which limited kingly power in England and which is popularly thought as an early step in the evolution of limited government.
