The Petition of Right is a major English constitutional document that sets out specific liberties of the subject that the king is prohibited from infringing.

It sais, basically, "Personal rights, therefore, are above the Crown; the law is above the supposed fountain-head of the law, and forced "loans" or "benevolences" are illegal". This is from wikepedia, no copyright intended. Why don't you just Google it? There are many sites that will tell you all about The petition of Rights, sent to Charles I in 1628.
