  • Plague
  • Growth of Markets
  • Magna Carta
  • This is King John getting ready to seal the Magna Carta
  •  The black plague came from China along the Silk road and went to Europe. The plague led to the decline of feudalism  because many of the people were dying from the plague, so there weren't a lot of people to protect the lands. 
  • Plague
  • The growth of markets led to the decline of feudalism because kings would support the towns and take the money, and use it for armies.  
  • Hundred Years' War
  • This shows France and England fighting. 
  • The Magna Carta led to the decline of feudalism because Edward I, King John's grandson, started to include more people in the government. He included lower-ranking clergy, and high-level Church officials and nobles. The people made King John put the seal on the Magna Carta to show that everybody should have the same rights. Many people shifted power to the common people, since they started to include them in the government. 
  • Hundred Years' War
  • This is Joan of Arc
  • The plague also led to the decline of feudalism because the power was shifted from the nobles to the common people. Since so many people had died, the people who survived could demand more money and rights. 
  •  The Hundred Years' War contributed to the decline of feudalism by helping to shift power from feudal lords to monarchs and to common people.
  • Going along with that,  kings no longer relied extensively on nobles to supply knights for the army. Since the kings and nobles didn't really work well together, they were going to give the power to the common people.
