The Decline Of Feudalism-Bubonic Plague By: Alexia Maxwell
Oh no! A rat! Run!
Oh no! Everybody's dead! Dead bodies everywhere.
I'm infected! Someone help! I've been like this for two days.
The Black Death took over 24 million lives. It spread through rats on merchant boats and on the Silk Road around Europe.
Many people, unfortunately, died in the Bubonic Plague era. People got little black dots on their skin, and in a week of symptoms, they could potentially die.
Why am I loosing power? The feudal lords will not take over!
The Bubonic Plague was caused by bacteria called Yersinia pestis. After one-week flu-like symptoms develop and the skin is swollen and some lymph nodes may break open.
Why would you say that?
Will I get the plague?
The Bubonic plague began in 1346 and ended in in 1350. The bubonic plague traveled through Europe. It was spread by rats infected by the disease and merchant boats.
By having the Bubonic Plague, the monarchs lost all power and the social pyramids fell. The Black death killed so many individuals. I could definitely tell that the king was very stressed out about this and devastated.
The Feudal Lords obtained and maintained power. It effected peoples lives by having to see so many dead bodies and just to think if you get the plague its scary.
