  • Why is this happening?!
  • It's those awful jews fault!!!!!!!!
  • Mother it's ok. Trust me, you'll feel better.
  • Bessie here is a commoner/worker just like her mother, sister Agnes, her brother Berwick and her father.
  • One day Bessie's mother and brother got pretty sick, along with many other people. They were victims of the Bubonic Plague, also known as the Black Death. The Bubonic Plague was a virus. No one knew what had caused it. Or how to stop it. Doctors performed harmful remedies, or some harmless remedies that did nothing. So people blamed Jews, because everyone believed  they were evil. When actually it was rats that caused it.
  • Not to long after being infected they died. Along with tons of other people that were also workers, that the goverment needed. Bodies upon bodies and upon bodies piled up. It was a very sad time for Bessie, Agnes, and their father and many others. Most of their friends also died. The remaining feared for their health, and lives. Bessie was scared and feared that her father, or Agnes, or even she herself may be next. 
  • You guys will get paid more money.
  • But soon everyone started using the deaths to their advantage. People saw the oppurtunity to try and make a change with the social structure. By demanding more rights, equality, and privlages. 
  • Nobles and the other higher class people obviously didn't like this and tried to stop their demands and bring things back to the way it used to be. But they failed miserable and things just ended in a bloody battle.
  • (This is not what happened. The commoners did not sit on thrones after this but this shows that they had power so they might as well did) Finally, commoners won the battle and the power shifted. So commoners in a way had more power then even the king/ruler.
