Hello! The people behind me and I are peasants! We are about 80 to 90 percent of our region and are at the bottom of our social feudal system. We work and live on farms and we make all the food for the classes above us. Even though we are poor and have little power, we are valued because we make all of the food!
Hello! We are the artisans and the merchants. The artisans make a variety of different materials and products that people need and then the merchants go out and sell the goods that were made by the artisans. Here, we work as a team to make the people happy and also earn money. The artisans are valued, but not as much as peasants because the peasants produce food. The merchants are valued the least because they do not produce anything and only sell.
Good evening, I am a knight. As a warrior, my job is to be loyal to and protect my lesser lord. In exchange, they give me land and food to survive. When I fight, I usually ride on horseback which I learned to do at age 4 and 5. At around age 7 or 8, I was sent to live with a powerful relative and I continued to practice my skills. At age 14, I became a squire and learned how to use a sword. From then, I went to live with a knight who studied me until he approved me of becoming a knight myself. Now that I am a true knight, soul and honor are very important to me, so I follow chivalry. Chivalry is the code of only doing good deeds, being loyal to the king and pope, and also to be helpful to ladies.
Welcome, I am a lesser lord. My job is to receive land from the higher lords and then promise to fight for them when the time comes. I also train warriors or knights to protect me. They are taught to fight, be loyal and obedient. For the protection, I give them some of the land that I received and also food.
Hello, I am a lord. I receive a large portion of land from the king and then give some of that land to the lesser lords. I do that so they will promise to fight for me. I am highly known and have a large amount of power.
Hello, I am a king! I am very well known and have the most power except for the Pope. I am also in charge of everyone else. Most of the land starts with me where I grant some of it to the lords. In return, they give me taxes and soldiers who will fight for me.
