Edward I is sometimes referred to as "the English Justinian". He had a love
for justice, honor, and order in his affairs.
At one point in his reign, he faced a declaration of war with France and
rebellions from the Welsh and Scots. He decided that the only way to overcome
his difficulties would be to elicit the support of his people. In 1295 he
called together a parliament consisting of representatives of the nobility, the
church, and the common people. This "Model Parliament" marked the beginning
of parliamentary government in England, a system which has continued to the
"What touches all, should be approved by all, and it is also clear that
common dangers should be met by measures agreed upon in common." Edward
proclaimed. He restricted the power of the king by accepting the rule that
taxes could not be levied or laws made except by the consent of parliament. Edgiva Queen of England and Edward 1st, King of West Saxons were married in Wessex, England.
