The Decline of Feudalism By Kylie Ross
We have less armor!
We have less people
Thank you I shall serve with this longbow
This is money for you to serve as a knight
This is how the Hundred Year's War contributed to the Decline of Feudalism. When England and France fought a series a wars for the control and ownership of France's Land, it was called the Hundred Year's War.
How can I escape this jail cell? I can't be persecuted
England had usually won most of the battles against France, despite being outnumbered. The two armies that had faced was the French army and the English army.
I don't need you anymore as much
I don't understand
In the series of wars, the French army had used Crossbows and the English army had used Longbows as weapons. The monarchs recruited commoners by paying them money from the taxes.
Now we get paid to work as soldiers instead of our past commoner life
Joan of Arc claimed she had heard voices of saints urging her to save France. She led the French army to victory in the Battle of Orleans. But later was captured by the allies of the English army and was burned because of accusations of being called a witch and a heretic.
I have to do this
The kings / monarchs were able to raise taxes to afforfd a paycheck for knights. Also, by shifting power from fuedal lords to monarchs. And kings didn't need nobles.
Each commoner / peasants were able to gain power because even though they had been forced to fight in the army and pay higher and pay higher and more often taxes, some people who survived the war were used as workers and soldiers.
