Storyboard Text

  • Lords!
  • I have now decided that I will split the land between you four, but in order for you to keep the land, you must promise me your loyalty.
  • Please welcome your new Vassal.  Your loyalty is required to help the king!
  • As The Fall of Rome just happened last year, King Charlemagne is in a crisis trying to split the land between the lords.  He has just become king by the pope and it has been a chaotic week for him.
  • Where is my food!
  • After promising the king their loyalty the king split the land between the four of them.  They each left and split the land between more vassals that promised them loyalty.  The vassals then had control over the serfs and peasants that were in their land.
  • And God may forever save us.
  • Amen
  • The Serfs that were tied to the land began enthusiastically but soon realized that they had to do all the work for the vassal.  The peasants though continued life normally after promising their loyalty to the vassal and the king.
  • The vassals and serfs lead a very different life.  While the vassal lead in leisure the serfs worked long hours in the fields.  The one thing that they shared was Christianity, and the church officials and pope helped keep that.
  • King Charlemagne was very Christian.  He protected the pope against other invaders still, even if the Franks have been gone for a while now.  He used the Christianity to unite the people after the fall of Rome and it is one of the things everyone has in common.
  • King Charlemagne did die, but his kingdom did not.  The medieval ages lasted until the 15th century and turned into the Renaissance.  Feudalism has since then changed into an equal rule. 
  • Yeah! Who will rule?
  • Who will rule now?
  • I can't belive it!
