Feudal system

(Ranked from Highest to Lowest)

Kings and Queens- Ruled all of the land and were ranked of the highest of the Feudal system but kings were seen as the most important

Nobles/Lords-These set of people were to inherit the trait of a king and were ranked just below the kings and Queens

Knights- These people worked to protect the Kings and Queens in exchange for land and/or money and had little just about no power

Peasants- Worked on plantations on the Lords land

Knights

Became a page at the age of 7 and also learned crave meat, serve meals, and run errands.

If skills were approved they would become a knight at the age of 18

Soldiers

Knights were brought up differently because of their choice to devoting their life into becoming where as others didn't.

Foot soldiers used swords/spears/ daggers, Archers used longbows and crossbows, and Pike-men used spear like weapons called Pikes

The Roman Catholic Church

The only known church at the time was the Roman Catholic Church. Peasants worked for free on the land of the church and would usually pay with items rather than money because they were low on money.People of the church were: The pope, archbishop, Bishop, Deacon, and priest. While popes focused mainly on religious conflicts they would wind up in conflict with the kings. The main conflict was wither the pope had the right to choose the religious officials.
