England's Early Ages
The Roman Empire had left Britain in 410 AD. For about 500 years the clans of Britain were at each other's throats until Athelstan of the Anglo-Saxons united the Anglo-Saxons to the Kingdom of England on the year of 927 AD, he then became the first true King of England. At the time the government of England was a total monarchy, and it would stay the way for very long.
England's Middle Ages
In 1189 Richard Lionheart lead England's crusades. At that time England also was very discriminant towards Jewish people, some of the wealthiest people at the time. The crusades as any war, cost a lot of money, because of this King John (Richard LionHeart's Brother) attempted to get money back by controlling the nobles, in reaction to the King's doings they forced upon him the Magnate Carta, a law document that protected their rights and limited the King's power.
