Wat Tyler
1325 - 1381
Peasant Leader
Wat Tyler was the leader of a Peasant uprising, which was named after him (Wat Tyler's Rebellion).

In 1381 Wat Tyler led more than
100 000 peasants in a march to London after the overtaxed people lost patience when the Crown ordered a new head tax. The rebels demanded an end to serfdom and a repeal of oppressive labor laws.

A young king Richard II agreed to their demands but Wat Tyler was soon killed by the mayor of London and the king's promises put aside.
