Feudalism in the Middle Ages By: Lizette gerding

Feudalism- The dominant social system in medieval Europe, in which the nobility held lands from the Crown in exchange for military service, and vassals were in turn tenants of the nobles, while the peasants (villeins or serfs) were obliged to live on their lord's land and give him homage, labor, and a share of the produce, notionally in exchange for military protection.

Manor- Self-sufficient estate of a medieval lord

Who lived on the manor- Peasents, serfs, lords, kings, judge, nobles, knights, bishop, and nun

Feudal Pyramid

How are the society groups interdependent- Everyone depends on the king to give them land. Everyone depends on the serfs and peasents to give them food and help out whith anything. Everyone depends on the bishop to pray for them because he was the only way that anyone could get into heaven.

How does the feudalism system affect politics- Because it makes it so eveyone is depending on eachother so you have to depend on eachother for this. If the king was doing something he would have to depend on everyone else to help him, not just himself.

How does the feudalism system affect social structure- Since they depend on eachother I think they talk to eachother a lot. Because they are dependent on eachother though, I think they normally order people to do something. I don't think they really hung out at all or had full on conversations.

How did the feudalism system affect the economy- The lords would collect the serfs money, then they would give it to the knights. The King gave everyone land in return of their serfice or just because they needed it for their families.
