The first cause: Bubonic Plague
The second cause: Magna Carta
The third cause: The Crusades
The bubonic plague killed millions of people and it had an effect on feudalism. The reason that it changed feudalism is that it killed almost 25 million people in Europe, and after the disease passed there were no more serfs to labor the land because most of them were dead, and if some survived the masters could pay them and then they could leave and live there own lives.
This is how the black death contributed to the decline of feudalism.
The Magna Carta made the power of the law higher than the king. This bends the biggest rule in feudilism, The king is the highest power, nothing comes ahead of him.
The crusades could not fail to affect in many ways the life of western Europe. For instance, they helped to undermine feudalism. Thousands of barons and knights mortgaged or sold their lands in order to raise money for a crusading expedition.
