    • Hello,
      The way the feudal system works is that the king gives the nobles land and the nobles give the king money and knights, then the nobles give the knights land and the knights give the nobles protection and military service, afterward the knights give the peasants land and the peasants give them food and labour. The hierarchy order is as follows, the king at the top then the nobles also known as the barons, after there are the knights or vassal the at the very bottom are the peasant also called serf.

  1. Hi, from what i knew and understood, the feudal system was all about reinforcing the kingdom by letting the king be still in power. The king would reinforce the kingdom and still be in power by giving land to the barons, who gave him money and knights in return. The barons would then give land to the knights who gave the barons protection and military service in return. Then, the knights would give land to the peasants who gave the knights food and labour in return. All of that is called the feudal system.

  2. Hello,
    The feudal system was very well organised. It was a monarchic system : the King at the top, then the nobles, then the knights and the peasants. The king gives land to the nobles and he receives money and knights in return. The nobles give land to the knights and receive protection and military service. And the knights give land to the peasants and receive food and labour. This was the feudal system.

  3. Hello
    The feudal system took place between the 8th century and the 15th century AD.
    The feudal system involves four levels of society: 1. The king, 2. The baron, 3. The knights and 4. The peasants. The system was based on an exchange of land for money, loyalty or food.
    Exemple: the peasants gave food to knights in exchange of land. The feudal system helped to secure Europe

  4. Hello,
    The feudal system is a economic system during the 8th century until the 15th century AD.
    It consists of giving lands in exchange of food, protection, money, loyalty or military service.
    At the top of the organization is the King, then the lords, also called Nobles, then the Knights and finally the peasants.
    The King gives some fiefs to the Lords and received money and Knights in exchange. the Lords give lands to the Knights and received protection and military service in return…

  5. Hello,
    The Feudal system is an economic and monarchic system. It lasted from the 8th Century AD to the 15th Century AD.
    There was five levels in the society:
    – 1: The king
    – 2: The nobles, lords, barons
    – 3: The knights
    – 4: The peasants
    Each one had to give land to whoever follows him (except the peasants). They also received something: the king received money and knights from the nobles. The nobles received protection and military service from the knights. The knights received food and labour from the peasants. The peasants received nothing (only land) because nobody follows them in the Feudal system.
    This system helped to secure Europe.

  6. Hello,
    the feudal system is very well organized with several ranks:
    1: The King
    2: The Nobles
    3: The Knights
    4: The Peasants.
    The King gives land to the nobles. The Nobles give land to the Knights. The Knights give land to the Peasants.
    The Peasants give part of their harvest and their animals to the Knights. The Knights give their protection and military services to the Nobles. The Nobles give money and their Knights for the King’s service.

  7. Hello everybody,
    The feudal system took place during the Middle Age (from the 8th century AD to 15th century AD). The peasants give food and labour to knights against lands. Knights have to protect and help with military the nobles against lands. The nobles have also lands in exchange of money and knights from the king. So the feudal system is a political, economic and hierarchical system (of four different social classes: 1 the king, 2 the nobles, 3 the knights, 4 the peasants.). It is based on the exchange of lands against protection, military service, food, labour, money and knights.

  8. Hello,
    The feudal system is the political system in Middle Age, between 700 and 1400 A-C.
    This system relays on the hierarchy which goes from most powerful the less powerful : the king, the nobles, the knights and the peasants. The peasants labour, produced give food and they money to the knights. In exchange, to that, they protect the peasants on the request of nobles.
    Then those nobles give money and food to the king. The king is the most powerful of all, it’s the one who commands all of them.

  9. Hello.
    The Feudal system is a hierarchical system of share of land, protection, money and food. The king gives lands to nobles who will give money and knights to the king. Then the nobles give lands to the knights who, in exchange, will give them protection and military service. Then the knights give protection and land to peasants so they can provide food to the kingdom.

  10. Hello,
    Feudal society is made up of a king, of nobles, knights and peasants.
    It is in the form of a hierarchy. The king gives land to the nobles, the nobles give land to the knights, the knights give land to the peasants. In exchange, the peasants give their harvest to the knights, knights give military service and protection to nobles, and the nobles bring the protection of the knights and the money to the king.

    • Hello,
      The feudal system is a hierarchical system of sharing land, protection, money and also food, in which the king gives some of his lands to the nobleman, who keeps some and gives them to the knights, and knights keep it to themselves. and give the rest to the peasant. the peasants give food and work to the knights; the knights give the nobles protection and military service, the nobles give the king money and knights; the king is the most powerful of all, he is the one who commands all.
