  • The Feudal System By: Alicia Gebara 
  • We are Kings and Queens. We make up the highest class of the feudal system. I own all the land and am considered to be the highest lord of Europe.  All the nobles and knights are my vassals, that means that they fight with me, pay me on special occasions, and give me food and shelter if I come to visit. I pay my vassals with  fiefs. 
  • We are the nobles! We make up the second level of the feudal system. We are the vassals of kings and Queens and are the Lords of lower ranking Lords and knights.  Our sons are educated to read and write and our daughters are educated to be good wives. I am a Lord and my wife is a lady.  We are payed by the King in fiefs and have complete power over the people who live in our fief.
  • We are knights and make up the third level of the Feudal system! Our Parents were lords and ladies and we began our knight training at 7 years old! We serve our noble lords in exchange for land.
  • We are Peasants and are the common people in the feudal system!  We do not own land but we work on land that nobles or knights own. We pay taxes and are illiterate but we are lucky to be protected by our Lords. We grow our own food and have long work days. We are happy with our village life because it is all we have ever known.
