We spent most of our time looking over the kingdom.
We give vassals land in exchange for their loyalty.
After the fall of Rome people needed protection from invading groups. People developed a system where people would pledge their loyalty to a lord in return for land and protection.
I spent almost my entire life working just to become a knight.
I am a Monarch. I look over and maintain the kingdom. I sometimes need money for my soldiers. So I had to rely on my vassals, especially nobles, to provide enough knights and soldiers.
we can’t move our social class.
I am a lord/lady. I mange and help in wars by supplying them with a well-trained fighting force. In my free time I enjoyed hunting and hawking ,feasting and dancing, board games such as chess, and reading.
I am a knight. It took me almost my entire childhood through teenage to become a knight.l left my home when I was 7. After that I spent 7 years as a squire, I served under a lord/lady as a Paige. I finally became a squire and served and lived with a actual knight.
We are serfs. We are tied to our lord’s land. We spent all of our time working. We work in fields or have some other jobs. We pay more than half of our crops or earnings as taxes to the lord/lady. We can’t move our social class.
