Mr. Bittner, I don't understand how feudalism declined.
Well Ms.Vandre, feudalism went down in more ways than one.
King John, You must sign the Magna Carta and give us our rights!
I'm dying! Cough Cough....silence
The many political changes in medieval Europe was just one of the reasons for the fall of feudalism. King John signed the Magna Carta which limited his power, and gave more to the nobles.
Now do you understand about the fall of Feudalism?
Ummm..could you actually repeat that? I didn't get any of it.
Another reason, was the terrible Black Death. This plague wiped out tons of people, and led to drastic social and economic changes.
The final reason for the fall of feudalism was a long series of wars. One of these was called the Hundred Year war. It was a fight over control over lands. This shifted power from feudal lords, to common folk.
