Daily Life of a Medieval King
Transcript of Daily Life of a Medieval King
Medieval King by Isom Whitely The king during this time had many duties. His first duty was to protect his land and its people. On a daily basis his routine would vary according to what was going on
around the castle and in the country. If they were at war he would either
dictate from a safe place or he would ride into battle with his men. http://www.thehistoryblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/agincourt.jpg If the country was at peace, he would have meetings and appointments to attend. He would entertain foreign guests/visitors. He was the law of the land.
Medieval clothes provided information about the status of the person wearing them. Only the wealthy could dress in fashionable clothes. The king’s clothes were usually lavished with fur, jewels and gold. They were made with the finest materials available. This king is wearing clothes with jewels sewn in. Kings during the Medieval Period lived in castles which were built near water or high ground. There were some that combined the two. On a hill or higher ground, enemies could be spotted before an attack. Lakes, rivers, and moats provided another level of protection. Castles were heavily guarded to protect the royal family. As head of the upper class, kings were able to afford to eat more varieties of food. A king’s menu would consist of 3-4 types of meat; like roasted pig, deer, beef, and mutton. Assorted vegetables and fruits, nuts, and pastries. In Medieval Times a king had many duties but he was able to eat well and live well.
