  • Answer:

    the right to imprison people without a trial

    Explanation:

    Magna Carta Libertatum, better known as the Magna Carta, is a letter granted by John I of England in Runnymede, near Windsor, on June 15, 1215. It was first drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Stephen Langton, with the objective of making peace between the English monarch, with wide unpopularity, and a group of rebellious barons. The document promised the protection of ecclesiastical rights, the protection of barons against illegal detention, access to immediate justice and limitations of feudal tariffs in favor of the Crown. The agreement would be implemented by a council of twenty-five barons. Neither side fulfilled its commitments and the letter was annulled by Pope Innocent III, which caused the first war of the Barons.
