Feudalism is the political and social system of the Middle Ages. A lord granted a vassal land in exchange for loyalty, military assistance and other services.
Lords would grant land to vassals who would give their loyalty and protection to the lord in return.
Vassals are subject to the will of their Lord. Vassals could grant land to knights creating a contract with them, and becoming lords themselves.
WARS were destructive to peasants and opportunities for the nobles.
Wars usually broke out because of disputes between lords and vassals.
Manors were large farming estates that included manor houses, cultivated lands, woodlands, pastures, fields, and villages.
Peasants lives were difficult during the middle ages. They spent long hours working in the fields.
Chivalry was a system of rules that dictated a knights behavior. The code of chivalry did much to improve the rough crude manners of early feudal lords.
