The archbishops and bishops were directed to bring the heads of their cathedral chapters, their archdeacons, one proctor for the clergy of each cathedral,and two proctors for the clergy of each diocese. Every sheriff was directed to cause two knights of each shire, two citizens of each city, and two burgesses of each borough, to be elected.

His parliament was intended to represent the three great estates or classes into which mediaeval society might be roughly divided, the clergy, the barons, and the commons ; those who pray, those who fight and those who work, as Maitland puts it.
