My King, I know that in feudalism, land is owned by kings or lords but held by vassals in return for loyalty, I would like a fief so that I can be a vassal.
Thanks for all this land, my King. Here I plan to make a large estate that will include farm lands, pastures and a village.
It is no problem, young knight, but you are a lord know so i suggest you get yourself some vassals of your own. That way you'll be able to get some advice.
My Lord, the crops are fully grown, you'll have them very soon.
This serf is a peasant that is considered part of my manor just like his kids. His family will be here for a while so I need to keep them content
Very good, I saw the crops, you have done very good this year.
If you wish to become a vassal, you will have to follow my laws, pay taxes, prepare my court, raise and lead armies to fight for me, and you will have to give me advice. I will protect you and your land and will treat you with honor. Do you agree to these terms?
Yes, I do agree to your terms, sir.
During the years between ancient and modern times, or the Middle Ages, religion was very important.
In the name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit...
You that as a male serf I have to work the fields all day from sunup to sundown. Also, our son is now old enough to work there too, so he's coming with me.
Yes I know, and you know that our daughter and I will care for the house, our garden, animals, our clothes, and making our meals.
