Question One: "Why did King Charles impose tax and request new funds through extraparliamentary measures? What limits does the Petition attempt to place on royal taxation?"There was one main reason for King Charles taxing the people of England without Parliament's consent. This was that he and the Duke of Buckingham George Villiers had insisted on fighting a war with both France and Spain. He needed money desperately so that he could fight this war and because of this The Petition of Right came to be in 1628. It was because of his foreign policy that he needed money. It was because of Parliament that he was not able to tax the people in the first place. Even though Parliament forbade it, he still taxed the people without their consent so that he could fund his wars.

They were basically saying that no person should have to give money to the king without the king having Parliamentary consent. The limit they were trying to place upon the king was that he would have to ask Parliament before he could tax the people for things such as funding a war.Question Two: "How did the Petition criticize arbitrary arrest?"There were a couple main reasons the Petition criticized arbitrary arrest I believe. For one, it had been stated in the Magna Carta signed years earlier that the king would recognize the rights of Englishmen such as not to be imprisoned arbitrarily, yet people still were imprisoned arbitrarily even after the Magna Carta was signed. For the king to violate this meant that the Magna Carta had been somewhat ignored therefore part of its purpose had been forgotten. The Petition stated that "no man ought to be adjudged to death but by the laws established in your realm" and "nevertheless of late time divers commissions under your Majesty's great seal have issues forth by which certain persons have been assigned and appointed to the commissioners with power and authority...
