Fact of the Day: King Parliament

While his father King John faced hostility which emerged with the creation of the Magna Carta against his will, King Henry III faced a civil war which forced him to see the creation of English Parliament which further weakened the power of the king and established a very basic foundation of democracy.

Henry III enjoyed a long life and a long reign for that period. Could I have a clone just for reading history, please? Certainly the emergence of England's Parliamentary system would be interesting to learn more about.
