King John of England was one-time monarch of England. He signed the Magna Carta.

While the real King John was in London taking the Crusader's Oath, the android Kamelion was being used in a plot by the Master to sabotage Earth history by preventing King John's signing of the Magna Carta, an event pivotal to the development of parliamentary democracy on that planet. This plot was foiled by the intervention of the Doctor. (DW: The King's Demons)

Earlier in his personal timestream, the Doctor had met John's brother Richard the Lionheart in Palestine. (DW: The Crusade)

Behind the Scenes

The following year, whilst eluding rebel forces, John sent his baggage train across the square-mouthed estuary on the northwest margin of East Anglia, only to have the Crown Jewels it carried accidentally dropped and sunk in its waters. Tegan Jovanka's foreknowledge of this event was summed up in her assessment of John as "the one who lost something in the Wash." The Doctor had previously met the historical John's sister, Lady Joanna in The Crusade)
