Western Civ Lesson 100: Answering to 2 topics

1.) Describe feudalism and manorialism.

Feudalism and manorialism are basically the same thing except they both have different way of putting the names out. Let me elaborate, so, during the 9th and 10th century there was a time where the kings weren’t able to protect their people so the people had to seek protection from rich people that were able to help them out. Feudalism and manorialism is basically the relationship between the rich landowner and the people in need of protection described a bit differently. Feudalism is basically a relationship between the lord and the vassals, the lord is the rich guy and the vassals are the people in need of protection. The vassals not only agree to work for the lord in exchange for protection, they gave an oath to the lord to defend him for whatever should happen. Manorialism is the relationship between the lord and the serf. Same idea here the serfs agree on labor work and gave an oath to protect the lord when need be. By giving an oath that meant being the lord’s knight.

2.) What changes did William the Conqueror introduce in England?

William the conqueror’s reign began when he defeated Harold on a battle to see who would become the next king after the death of Edward the Confessor. Once William won the battle, gets crowned king, he starts spreading the lands that he now owns. He gives some of the lands to the Norman nobles while keeping most of it to himself. A book called the Domesday book was created in order to keep track records of the economic info during the reign of William. William successfully controlled England and some parts of France, even though that wasn’t his territory at all. Not only was the economical growth great with William being the leader, but he also managed to rule parts of France, so that’s the kind of power controlled by William the Conqueror.
