King John did many things to upset his people. In 1202 it was believed that John was responsible for his nephew, Arthur of Brittany's, murdered and they rebelled against him. Two years later John's army was defeated and John had no choice but retreat. To pay for the costly defeat, John increased taxes which decreased his popularity even more. In 1207 John and Pope quarreled over who should be Archbishop of Canterbury. The pope excommunicated John and put England under a church law that stated that no christening or marriage would be legal until the time the pope said that they would be. Church law said that only christened people could get to Heaven while children born out of marriage were doomed to Hell. John lost another battle to the French in 1214. This defeat resulted in England losing all her possessions in France. John was forced to sign the Magna Carta at Runnymede in 1215. This guaranteed the people of England rights that the king could not go back on. In 1216, John tried to go back on the Magna Carta but this only provoked the barons into declaring war on him.

The Barons rose in revolt against King John in the First Barons War of 1215 at his refusal to abide by the Magna Carta. The revolt was led by Robert Fitzwalter, who was supported by the army of Louis VIII of France. Louis continued to drag the war on against John even after some barons had made peace with him.
