jan 1, 1689 - Bill of Rights 1689
In 1689, William and Mary accepted a formal document called the Bill of Rights. It explained the rights and liberties given and owed to the people of England. This Bill of Rights, known as the English Bill of Rights, limited the monarchy’s power and protected the right of free speech in Parliament. This was important in history because it helped lay out the rights of citizens. It has affected the present day and made a basis for our Bill of Rights.
