History 3315 Trace the development of Parliament from the reign of Henry III through the reign of Edward III, including the significant people, events, and documents that contributed to the process. A full discussion of the development of Parliament should begin with the legacy of Magna Carta. The signing of Magna Carta (1215) by King John established the notion among the barons of an expectation of shared governance between the crown and the barons.
