  • Hello, my name is Brady and I'm here to teach you about feudalism. The first and highest rank is the king. He rules over the whole kingdom.
  • Your majesty
  • I'm the King; The highest rank on the feudalism pyramid
  • The next rank is Noble Men, Church officials and lords. The lords are often very wealthy and give knights land and in return they get protection.
  • I'll give this land to you but you must give me protection and you must work the land.
  • Using this comic strip I will tell you about what I know about feudalism. There are different levels of the pyramid that all have different wealth and jobs. 
  • Knights are the 3rd highest in rank on the feudalism pyramid. Once they recieved land from their lord they would often make peasants work on it
  • While I protect and serve the lord you must work the lands
  • After the fall of Rome many Germanic kingdoms had kings and A social structure like Feudalism. The king would take most of the kingdom and give the rest to lords and church officials. The church officals and  lords were 2nd highest in rank. Christianity was very important especially after Charlemagne unified all Germanic kingdoms
  • The last level of the Feudalism pyramid was peasants and surfs. They both worked the land but when land was sold surfs would go with it as peasants wouldnt
  • When lords received land they often did not want to take care of it or defend it. They would give their land to knights and have them offer protection and service in return. These transactions made them become vassals

  • When the knight received the land he technically was serving the king because he was serving his lord which was controlled by the king. But the knights did not want work their lands. To avoid this they would make surfs and peasants do it. When a battle arose knights would have to fight.
  • Peasants and surfs did not own land, only worked on it. The main difference between surfs and peasants in medieval times was that surfs belonged to the land while peasants did not. They were the largest group of the pyramid. 
  • In conclusion, the levels on the feudalism social structure goes King, Lords, knights, and surfs/peasants. Each receives a certain amount of land to use or works on land. They all technically work for the king as he is on top too.
