With feudalism, we’ve established a way of living, and earning money and food
The servants said supper is ready! The main course is venison!

Would you like to play a game of chess?
Feudalism was giving land in return for service or protection. A lord was a vassal to a king, and a knight was a vassal to a lord. Peasants grew crops, took care of animals, and did jobs like blacksmiths.
The daily life of a monarch was playing board games, like chess, and eating a lot of food. Since the lords managed the land, the king just had to maintain control, which usually didn't happen.
As a lord, daily life was extravagant. They threw parties, ate quite a lot of food, sometimes ordered around the knights to collect taxes.

Everyday, knights often trained, collected taxes, or defended the land. Knights started as a child, then servant or page, then squire, then was knighted. A big threat that knights had to face was vikings.
Are you ready to train more, squire?
Daily life as a peasant was work. All day long they worked so that they could pay their lord, and the extremely heavy taxes of medieval times. The difference between a peasant and serf was that serfs were tied to the land and lord, while peasants were free to go where they wished.
Pay up your taxes!
