I'm sorry, I'll try harder to get the peasants to work harder.
People like you make me sick.
May I enter Sir?
You may enter ma'am.
As a vassal, they were able to order around peasants, and discipline them if they were not working good or fast enough. They were also sometimes the person giving the peasant the land, food, and protection/shelter that they were using.
Let's both guard this, I could use company.
You guarding this post?
Vassals were also ordered around by lords, because vassals were just weaker lords. Vassals, however could also be lords to other vassals based off of how much land they own or how many slaves, servants they have.
Vassals had to be polite to woman, even if they were in lower classes than them. It was apart of chivalry back then, and because they had to honor the women, they had to be polite and nice to them.
We both hate the Sir Wilmington.
Vassals could also serve as knights to lord if they were needed to. Vassals could be knights after they had graduated from knighthood .
The land was what paid the vassals, and if the peasant who seek shelter in the manors and building on the land weren't working, they were kicked out and sometimes killed. The vassals lived off the land and if there wasn't enough production they didn't have much money.
You best be getting back to work to meet this weeks share.
Sir we are being overworked.
The vassals were usually hated by the peasant workers because they had to work long hard hours just for food and shelter, let alone not making any money.
