A Charter Is A Written Document That States The Conditions Of An Agreement

William Blackstone used the term for significant and monstrous violations of public trust, in a way and on a scale that transgression would justify a revolutionary reaction. The term used by Blackstone was neither a piece of legislation nor the intention to incorporate the future American concept of forensic audit: “For this, the judiciary should be placed above that of the legislator, which would be subversive for any government.” [9] Most constitutions require that amendments may only be adopted if they have been subject to a special procedure stricter than is prescribed for ordinary legislation. Magna Carta Libertatum (medieval Latin for “Magna Charter of Freedoms”), magna Carta in general (aka Magna Charta); “Great Charter”,[a] is a royal charter[4][5] of right, King John of England on June 15, 1215 at Runnymede near Windsor. [125] In a conciliatory gesture after the defeat of the barons, Henry adopted in 1267 the statute of Marlborough, which contained a new obligation to respect the conditions of the Magna Carta. [126] At the end of the sixteenth century, interest in the Magna Carta increased. Lawyers and historians then thought that there was an ancient English constitution that dated back to Anglo-Saxon times and protected English individual freedoms. They argued that the Norman invasion of 1066 had overthrown these rights and that the Magna Carta had been a popular attempt to restore them, making the Charter an essential basis for the contemporary powers of Parliament and legal principles such as habeas corpus. . . .
