  • The Decline Of Feudalism: The Bubonic   Plague   by Analyn Abuana
  • OH NO
  • The Bubonic Plague was one of the most deadliest disease to happen in Medieval Europe. Affecting those of all classes,   the  commoner, the noblemen, the knights  and the monarchs.
  • Being so deadly, it took  out about  a third of the  Medieval Europe population.   It killed people  of all classes . Most of the time, bodies were just left   outside to burn.  The disease spread from Asia all the way to Europe from lack of hygiene and infections caused by fleas from rats. 
  • However, many blamed the situation on the position of the planets,  Jews, and lepers.   Many people were terrified because once they were infected with the disease, they were practically  dead. They tried many ways to find someone to blame.  
  • The Black  Death  had symptoms  like fevers, vomiting, fierce coughing, sneezing fits,  and egg-sized swelling or bumps.  The  disease produced black and blue blotches that swelled up on the skin. 
  • The  amount of deaths caused great power leverage to   commoners . This  caused the decline of feudalism and a new economic system was rebuilt. There was a higher demand for  workers however, when most of the workers were dead, the workers  left would demand more power and less taxes. 
  • The  commoners maintained power by causing revolutions against monarchs and noblemen after the bad times of sickness had passed, Such as the  English Peasant's war which so happened the peasants won against King Richard II . Yet, the rebel leader died therefore losing momentum throughout time.
