    Explanation
    The Peasant's Revolt began in Kent and Essex. This revolt was a major uprising in England during the 14th century, led by Wat Tyler, John Ball, and other rebel leaders. The revolt was triggered by the imposition of a poll tax and the harsh treatment of peasants by the ruling class. The rebels marched from Essex to London, gathering support along the way, and demanding an end to serfdom and other oppressive practices. The revolt had a significant impact on English society and contributed to the eventual decline of feudalism.

The Peasant's Revolt of 1381 in England was primarily led by notable figures such as John Ball, a radical preacher who advocated for social equality and justice, Jack Straw, an insurgent leader who played a significant role in the uprising, and Wat Tyler, who emerged as one of the key commanders during the rebellion. Robert Hales, on the other hand, was not a leader of the revolt but rather the Lord High Treasurer of England at the time. His association with the government made him a target of the rebels, and he was among those executed during the course of the uprising.
