Confirmation of Charters


Confirmation of Charters

The Confirmation of Charters was issued by King Edward I of England in 1297. In the Confirmation, Edward reaffirmed Magna Carta and the Forest Chartercite web|url=http://www.britannia.com/history/docs/cartarum.html|title=Confirmatio Cartarum|accessdate=2007-11-30] . The Confirmation is most important todayOr|date=July 2008, however, because Edward I formally acknowledged Parliament's duty to approve all new taxes. This essentially stripped the monarchy of its royal right to tax as it pleased. Parliament effectively became a "second branch" or "second level" of government.
