  • Notes 
    • His general incompetence as King led to loss of land in France and, ultimately, to the Magna Carta. He managed to renew the war with Phillip II of France, losing Normandy in the process.Constant conflicts with his Barons resulted his having no real choice but to sign the Magna Carta. His failure to abide by the charter led to his death during the first Barons War.

      It should be noted that there is a great variety of assertions as to John's concubines. By some reasonable accounts, he has had 18 children by two wives and six mistresses, while othersources may only list the children by his wives. No one knows for sure, and I have only listed those here that appear in multiple publications.
