(correct response beneath the contestants)
We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next few weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.
|Jennifer Rosenberg, a lawyer from Walnut Creek, California

Correct response: What is the Magna Carta?
More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The Magna Carta was signed in 1215 between a group of English barons and King John; John had been ruling England essentially by “force and will”, often taking arbitrary decisions. Angry at the constant increase in taxes that King John was fund unsuccessful wars in France, the barons began organizing resistance against the King, and the Magna Carta was the set of demands from the barons which became their peace agreement with King John. It is still seen today as the foundation of much of the common law system used in England and many former British colonies. The agreement was revised many times over the next few decades, with the 1297 version remaining in force today. The clause from today’s clue is from Clause 16 of the Magna Carta.
