There were other charters drawn up around Europe at around the time of Magna Carta

Although Magna Carta is rightly celebrated for granting rights to all free men in perpetuity, there were a range of other charters drawn up around Europe in the same period that also sought either to establish basic principles of justice, curb the powers of rulers and or grant the right to resist. 

Some of the more intriguing of these, including the Statute of Pamiers (1212), the Golden Bull of Hungary (1222), the Constitutions of Melfi (1231) and the imperial land peace of Mainz (1235) are explored and contrasted by some of our most eminent medieval historians; Graham Loud (University of Leeds), Martyn Rady (UCL), Miri Rubin (QMUL) and Nicholas Vincent (UEA).
