Welcome to my castle. God gave me the right to rule!
Because of feudalism, we have order and stability.
Lords and Ladies
I'm the richest in the kingdom! I have to manage the land a lot because the king is lazy.
Feudalism was the economic and political system of medieval Europe in which people exchanged loyalty and labor for a lord's protection.
I have to defend the kingdom, and it can be pretty tiring!
Monarch had to work hard to maintain control of their kingdoms, and they also had to manage it. Few had enough wealth to keep their own armies, so they had to rely on vassals.
I hate working all day! It's too tiring!
Lords and ladies managed and defended the land from invaders, by giving knights to the monarch. They also had to act as judges when someone broke a law.
Knights defended the land, and trained 13 years to be a knight. Knights were loyal to the church, and were very wealthy.They started learning to dance, and to play the harp at 7 years old, and at 13 trained to fight.
A serf in feudal times would have to work almost every hour of the day. Serfs farmed, raised animals, worked the mills and payed heavy taxes. Serfs lived in one room houses with animals.
