So do we have a deal?
Hi, i'm Madeline the merchant. My life isn't all trade and go and get money, it's a lot more than that. The first struggle is just trying to make the deal. They often take a lot of my time.
I have to travel for materials through rough weather and avoid thugs.
Sometimes I have no one to trade with, no money, or nothing to trade.
My town also goes through troubles as well. The crusades decreased funds, and our king is selfish and greedy. He raised taxes, which left most in poverty, which meant they were unable to buy products. This put me in poverty too.
One lifting moment was the creation of the Magna Carta or The Great Charter, which allowed all freemen to vote on laws. My town was overjoyed and the limited power of the king gave people more money, which meant more trade!
But sadly, a disease called The Black Death came about 200 years after, making people run for their lives, and killing millions. I contracted it on a ship back from Asia, and when I returned home, the disease spread throughout my town.
