Summary of Steps 1-3 of the GHPPA

After the Roman Empire collapsed, Europe was divided into many small kingdoms ruled by different kings. This was the beginning of the Middle Ages and ranged from about 455 A.D. and continued until about 1559. During the Middle Ages societies were organized in a system called Feudalism. In this system, the people had no vote about anything. They had to obey and pay "overlords".

Summary continued…

  • Three social classes existed during the Middle Ages. The Nobility, or upper class, controlled the lands and did all the fighting. The upper class included kings, counts, dukes and knights. The clergy were the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church and included bishops, priests, nuns, and monks. The serfs, or lower class, were peasants who lived on the manors and tilled the soil.
