Model Parliament

Model Parliament, English parliament set up in 1295 by King Edward I. The Model Parliament's wide representation (clergy, earls, barons, two knights from each county, and two burgesses from each borough) was symbolic of Parliament's developing representational role, although the principles of membership were by no means strictly observed through much of the 14th century.
