Transcript of Feudalism and Manorialism

FEUDALISM AND MANORIALISM. Created by: Katy Spence.(: We are about to take you on a learning adventure, so pay close attention. Feudalism and Manorialism go hand in hand in Medieval England. FEUDALISM. In the Middle Ages, feudalism was the law of the land. The upper class took control over the lower class. Class Structure: When the Roman Empire fell, it created the bases of Feudalism unknowingly. Feudalism created protection of the once known as Romans so that they may have protection and resources to survive. Contributing Factors-Fall of Rome. This consisted of Kings, lords, and peasants. Other crucial contributors to this structure were the leaders of the of the church and other neighboring kings who held influence in the kingdom. It is no surprise that women struggled with power in society at this time also. Chivalry and Fealty Between a Lord and the Vassal Relationship. Like us at Mrs. Pawlowski.com. http://easybib.com/
World History book. A vassal was still part of a military elite that dominated Europe for centuries based on their monopoly of military might, but had a lesser status than the feudal lord. A chivalry (a word still used today but not in the same way) during the Central Middle Ages was a warrior code. Chivalry knights were extremely loyal to their lords, even dying for them. Manorialism. What is Manorialism? Manorialism is a political, economic, and social system that consists of a community of peasants that are rendered dependent on the Lord of the manor. There was a line of power in each manor.
The king, having the most power and
a serf, with the least amount. The Lord of the place would grant land and protection to his serfs. They gave service and loyalty in return. Land=Wealth Basically, the more land you owed, the wealthier you were. More land means more room for serfs to live.
The more serfs you have, you have more power! Living Conditions in the Manor The manors were self sufficient, meaning the
serfs that lived there raised and produced
everything they needed to survive. The living conditions were not the best. They are best described as "slums". Each manor consisted of several things. 3 farmlands

Eventually, the serfs
had enough money to but their freedom.
Although they had purchased their freedom, they had didn't have a place to live. Having enough money, the serfs paid their former lord to live on the land. Renting the land for a fee worked out fairly well.
