Outline From the point of view of his vassals, what made a good king in late-twelfth and thirteenth century Europe? What recourse did the vassals have if the king did not live up to their expectations? Use “Homage to Phillip II of France,” “Magna Carta”, and The Life of St. Louis to formulate your answer. - Homage to Phillip II o “Count Theobald has sworn to us on the most holy body of the Lord and on the holy gospel that he will aid us in good faith, as his liege lord, against every creature, living or dead”. o Homage: A promise by a lord to his vassal that gives the vassal food, a house, and even land in exchange for military protection and work. - “Magna Carta” o Document by the barons to King John limiting his rights as a king o Article 39: No free man shall be arrested or imprisoned or disseised or outlawed or exiled or in any way victimized, neither will we attack him or send anyone to attack him, except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land
