The Bubonic Plague was a disease that was spread by the fleas of dead or infected rats. The disease was caused by the bacteria that spread when the fleas went and bit humans.
AHHHHH!!! ITS A RAT!
Are you okay down there?
The Decline Of Feudalism Due To The Bubonic Plague
But this is the story of one man and what he experienced through the plague. He comes from a peasant family and works in the feilds. He works to support his mother and two other siblings while his siblings help their mother at home.
Hard day at work under the sun.
One day, when he came home from the feilds, he saw his siblings sitting in the floor next to their mother's deceased body. It seemed that she was sick for some time but she didn't want to worry them.
We don't know she just dropped dead!
He was sad and he realized that he had to take care of his three siblings, since he was the oldest out of three brothers and their father died when the third brother was born.
I will care for them, Mother.
When he went to work, he realized that there were way less workers than the week before. He spent most of the day thinking of a way that he could take care of his brothers. Later, his fellow workers told him that they were going on a strike for higher pay and more rights.
We will cease the work until our demands are met or else we will leave and find better working opportunities. You should join!
And off they went. Since there was a smaller amount of workers, it was easier to demand more rights and money. Not just for the field workers, but also to the rest of the peasants.
We DEMAND more RIGHTS, MONEY, and JUSTICE! Or we will FIND NEW PLACES to RAISE OUR FAMILIES, not under the rule of an unfair king!
