It is my position that the traits of Feudalism have been displayed within the movie, “Robin Hood.
” Feudalism began between the 8th and 9th centuries.
The vassal also had to pay for the arming of the lords oldest son when he became a knight.
Vassals pledged to pay the ransom for their lord in the event of his capture during war.
They say that Robin Hood and his companions lived in Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham.
They were called the ‘merry men’ and used to wear green clothes, a particular shade of green, called ‘Lincoln green’.It was first recognized in France, and later spread to most countries of Western Europe.When Charlemagne died there was no strong ruler to take his place.Levack states: “The bond of loyalty between lord and vassal was formalized by an oath.The oath established personal relationship in which the lord reciprocated the vassal’s loyalty and cases with a land grant.Sir Walter explains to Robin Hood about the importance of fighting for what you believe in and persuades Robin to motivate other Lords into fighting for the crown and not against it.The following quote is from Robin speaking to the new King, King John, and the Lords of the northern territory: “If you are building for the future, you need to keep your foundations strong, laws of the land enslave the people to a king who demands loyalty but offers nothing in return (Robin Hood)!That was when feudalism was established as the main system of government and way of life in Medieval Europe. It was hit several invasions of the Vikings, they Magyars, Muslim pirates, and others.People could no longer look to a central ruler for protection.A lord would grant land to another noble in exchange for protection and military services. Others were large, as big as an entire country or province. Vassals also owed payments call aids on certain occasions.When a lord’s oldest daughter married the vassal made special payments as a gift.
