Feudalism spread through Western and Central Europe and got its beginnings from Charlemagne, a Frank king (768-814). He built his kingdom, providing “a strong enough sense of community to ensure the spread of feudalism throughout the vast territory;” which became known as the Holy Roman Empire during the Middle Ages.
Charlemagne ruled over numerous tribes and semi-nomadic people. He put a bishop in each main town to eliminate or reduce fighting. He built a strong connection between church and state. He was called “Emperor of the Romans” in 800. So, political power rested with Frank nobility.
“As an emerging aristocratic caste of warrior-Christians, this Gallo-Frankish elite filled the countryside with fortified “”villas”…”villa” standing for a fortress-estate, and “coloni” representing a population of peasant-serfs who worked the soil…Commanding local units in a larger army comprised of heavy cavalry, these nobleman supplied the mosiac of regional forces that maintained the expanding feudal order.”
18th century historians define feudalism as “a type of government that linked landed estates to the legal concepts of “state and status”. Feudalism defined the “rights of possession” granted by the king in exchange for military service.
History shows through time, that what sparked the foundation of modernization was the failure of the powerful and legally sanctioned, medieval “political, religious, economic, and social institutions to work together.”

Fuedalism in the middle ages was easy for some and harder for others. The serfs were the peasent that did all the crafts, farming, labor, and the harvesting. The serfs had it the hardest out of all of the classes. The serfs were required to farm the land that the nobles owned and when they did harvest the grain or crops they would be force to use the faculities of the lords or nobles. For forces use of the faculities the lords or nobles would tax the serfs by taking some of the product of off the top depriving the serfs of their hard work. I beleive this was really unfair serfs but they were the low men on the totum pole in this system. For the housing for the serfs they would pay by their trade or goods produced to the lords or nobles for rent. The serfs did hold some power though. If they were being taxed too heavily the lord or nobles would lose there tenents thus losing there supplies and good which created their status and riches. The lords or noble were the land owner. They recieved free gift for other nobles for duties or favors from other nobles. This is a weird position to be in for me. You depend on the serfs for your riches through taxes and rent or your property. The church was in the best position in the middle ages. Everyone went to church and paid for their services and their way to heaven.

Feudalism was first brought about around 900 A.D., this first started with the kings needing different services. It consisted of political and military arrangements which sounds a lot alike the time and age we live in today with our corrupt political and not so kind military system. The kings would grant power and land to its lords and nobles for different services. This could be in the form of land control and keeping the authority in certain areas. Now we all know this never works people always get greedy and want more. i am just surprised there weren’t more people trying to overthrow the king at the time of his rule. Because they all had different duties they all knew a little bit more about the person they were serving. What is it that they say knowledge is power. Now for these lords and nobles they had the power of the military at there disposal because they worked so closely to the king. Now hold up you mean to tell me i can summon the army at the snap of my fingers. But why though this could of caused a great divide between neighbors and i am pretty sure it did. Now they did do there job as far as keeping some type of order in the regions they were located but just imagine giving an arougnat child the power to do what he wants. Yup all that power will go to his head, and i am sure it did. With the fall of the roman empire approaching. As the king sat atop the mountain top the first ones to lose the battle to vikings and Germanic savages were the noble and lords surely to follow was the king. So you tell me is giving all power spread throughput the kingdom a good idea?
