In 1215 King John left Odiham Castle for Windsore to consider the 48 articles which formed the basis of the Magan Carta.

The Magan Carta was agreed by King John on 12 June 1215 at Runnymede, averting civil war and forming the basis of modern democracy.

King John returned to Odiham Castle on 20 June 1215 on his way to Winchester and the Anglo Norman translation of the Magna Carta was issued from Odiham.
