Positive Impacts of Feudalism
Transcript of Positive Impacts of Feudalism
In the Middle Ages What is Feudalism? Political benefits: Created a stable government system:
Decentralization of power compared to the Roman Empire
More land owned by local Kings, Lords and Nobles
Increased security for all from outside threats:
Less war required
Land leases were transferred to first born sons
Hereditary system empowered women as the “the voice of reason” Economic Benefits: Stability allowed for prosperity and growth:
“The rich got richer”
Less resources spent on war creating more wealth
Job specialization occurred:
Bakers, instead of just farmers or fighters
Market economy begins as people start to barter their services Social Benefits: Stability allowed prosperity across generations:
Families started to have history
It was important for sons to be born to maintain land
Land stability allowed peasant families to have long term employment
Loyalty of the Knights preserved peace Conclusions: Feudalism provided many positive benefits especially compared to the previous government system of the Roman Empire.
A decentralized government or more local Kings and Nobles had increased stability
Stability increased wealth and jobs; and through job specialization began the market economy
There was less war as outsiders had to fight locals who cared more than when they were fighting for Rome
In exchange for their services and loyalty, families had life long access to land and employment Thank you for listening! Are there any questions??
