The king and nobles hold most of the power, followed by the lords, knights, and lastly, the peasants.
I am the King of Mars, and here is my lord vassal. I offer him control of fiefs and peasants and in return he gives me military aid and loyalty.
I am a Lord of Mars, and this knight is my vassal. I give him protection, food, and shelter in exchange for homage and military service.
Feudalism began in the 9th century and continued up until almost the 15th century!
As a lord, I own many plots of land, called fiefs, that are given to me by my king. In order to keep them properly cared for I often grant them to my vassals.
These are the peasants that work the land I have been granted by my Lord. I offer them protection, shelter and food, for the price of rent and farming my land.
As peasants we are the lowest class in the kingdom, and the system is rigid so we will never have the chance to advance in society.
As you can see our political feudal system works to benefit those with the most power and to make it nearly impossible for those who don't have any to move up in the ranks. But hey, it works!
