We give out feifs, plots of land, to the lords and vassals for the peasants to work on.
Me the king and my wife the queen are the highest ranking class in all of Europe
NOBELS LORDS AND LADIES
As the nobles we are wealthy landowners that rule over peasants and serfs and sponser vassals and knights.
KNIGHTS AND VASSALS
Kings ruled the land and where believed to be the rulers because of their divine right, the belief that god gave them their power.
PEASANTS AND SERFS
The lords duty was to manage and defend his land and the people who worked it. The lord appointed officials to make sure villagers carried out their duties. Lords also acted as judges in manor courts. The role of the noblewomen in the feudal system was to raise and train their children and sometimes the children of other noble families. Ladies were also responsible for overseeing their household, and taking over when the men weren't around.
THE FEUDAL PYRAMID
Vassals are knights that pledge their alliegance to a lord to then recieve a feif and start working their way up to the status of lord.
As knights it is our job to protect the kingdom and our lords.
Most peasants and serfs can't change their position on the feudal pyramid but a few peasants are able to make it into the ranks of knights and become lords eventually.
Peasants, like us, and serfs work the land and pay tax to the lord in return for safety.
Serfs are tied to the land while we are just the workers.
