Knights , Breaking Contracts

In Mr. Sanders' class we are learning about medieval knights and feudal contracts. Knights agreed to many different things when they signed a feudal contract. Knights could only break the contracts if he has taken council against his life and if the lord has wished to reduce him unjustly into servitude, and much more.

What is Feudalism?

Feudalism is a social system that Europe was in. It included the social structure, like kings/lords at the top, nobles, knights, peasants, and lastly serfs. Serfs were slaves. They were not allowed to be free, not like peasants. Knights protected the land. We haven't learned about nobles yet. And the lords and kings were the one's in charge of the empire. In 1000 A.D. the rise of feudalism began.
