King Richard II meets the rebels at Smithfield, Peasants' Revolt, 1381 (1864). After William Walworth, the Mayor of London, killed Wat Tyler, the leader of the rebellion, Richard (1367-1400) rode out to meet the remaining rebels, saying You shall have no captain but me. He persuaded them that all was well, that Tyler had been knighted and that they should go to St John's Fields where Tyler would meet them. The rebels duly obeyed, after which the barons quickly re-established control of the situation. The remaining leaders of the revolt were captured and executed.
