Why don't the nobles have to pay tax? Why do nobles get all the high court positions? It's so unfair! They never have to do any work, and they collect taxes from me, even though I'm the one doing the work! My life is never going to change... the nobles have it set so they will always win... AND, they still insist on collecting those age old feudal dues! Aren't we done with that already?
Oh I am going to die! My family didn't make enough money to pay the tax! And the nobles have the power to kill me, they won't willingly give up their control and a chance to show off their power! Help!
**Imagining crowns** because we want more power.
Yes! Through my old fashioned but FANTASTIC manorial court, I control much land and many serfs! And judiciary powers. YEAH! I love being a noble- Nobles all over Europe, have so many privileges! Status, and tax exemption, and special hunting laws vary, but we have succeeded in keeping our power from kings as countries consolidate. Wowie! Yay us!
