Transcript of W.H. Project, Standard 7.6.3: Feudalism

The development of feudalism played an important role in the medieval European economy. Feudalism was influenced by physical geography, and feudal relationships gave the establishment of political order. Standard 7.6.3 Feudalism is a web of relationships based on duties and responsibilities. It's a system of promises between lords and vassals. Feudalism developed in response to attacks from the Vikings. What is feudalism and its development? Feudalism's role in economy was giving
more power to the nobles. For they could
not depend on the king anymore, nobles
made relationships with knights. Knights
supported the nobles in battles, and, in
return, they gave knights land (fiefs).
The noble was known as a lord and the
knight was his vassal. What was feudalism's role in European economy? Peasants and serfs worked on the farm because knights were often out fighting.
- They gave the lord food or other payments as rent.

Since the lord was the ruler on the manor, he settled disputes, collected taxes, and punished any law- breakers. Serfs could not leave the manor without permission from the lord.

European Feudalism Royal Family Nobles Knights Peasants and Serfs The kings and queens were at the top of the feudal system.
Nobles served the king. The nobles gave knights land (fiefs) in exchange for protection. Knights gave protection to the nobles and had to go to wars.
They provided food, shelter, and money to their lords on special occasions.
When they got land, they became lords.
They followed the code of honorable behavior called "chivalry." Serfs worked on the fields and, in return, they got a small piece of land and protection.
Serfs traded their goods with the peasants for food.
Peasants had no land, but had freedom, while serfs could not leave the manor without the lord's permission. The Feudal System was a new social and political order that replaced the Roman Empire. Work Cited The Manor System Himani Around 1000 AD, more food was grown and population increased. People moved from manors into towns, and those towns grew because of the increase in trade.
