A long time ago, there used to be a system called, the Feudalism System! It consisted of 5 classes in order from highest to lowest, the highest class was the king, then the Lords, Noble Men, Church Officials, and Vassals, then the Knights, then the Peasants and Serfs at the lowest
Life as a Peasant and a Serf
Im a Peasant!
Im a Serf!
The Feudalism System took place in Medieval Europe, during the Middle Ages and after the Fall Of Rome. This family right here is a peasant family, which means all of them are peasants. If you are born by someone in a specific class, that will be the class you are in.
The Fierce Knights
It took me 5 years to be able to become the knight i am today!
The most important leader of the Franks was Charlemagne. He ruled for over 40 years. He encourages education and scholarship, and most importantly, he unified nearly all the Christian lands to of Europe into a single empire
Medival Europe Rocks!
Peasants worked on the land, same as Serfs. Peasants had more rights and a little bit of more freedom, and lords only rented some of their land the Peasants worked on. Serfs, or unfree Peasants, were tied to the land that they worked on, they could not leave the lords land without his permission. They had to farm his fields in exchange for a small plot of their own.
Knights were the mounted soldiers of the medieval world. In general, knights had to have a good deal of wealth, since armor and horses cost a small fortune. Becoming a knight took many years of practice and skill, but was worth it in the end to defend the empire!
The Middle Ages were rough and hard, but Medieval Europe chose the great leader Charlemagne to help them conquer and thrive for 40 years! He created a great system called the Feudalism system that helped the empire have defense and resources at the same time!
