Mission 2

The Norman legacy

Compétence : Parler en continu : je prends la parole pour raconter, décrire, expliquer.

Did you know?

The Normans affected the country’s landscape. The Conqueror’s White Tower is actually the Tower of London, built by William with stones imported from Normandy! They also affected language. What English words do you use in French?

01The feudal system

02How did this system work?

The feudal system and the Domesday Book

BBC Bitesize
Historians suggested that it had a basic structure:
King – owned all the land.
Barons – the king gave some land to the barons in return for money and men for the army.
Knights – the barons gave some of their land to the knights if they promised to fight when needed.
Peasants – the knights gave a few strips of land to the peasants and the peasants had to share their produce with them. They were not allowed to leave and were not free men.[…] The feudal system was a way in which a king could rule a violent society […] The knights of the feudal system developed ideas of ‘chivalry’, from the French word ‘cheval’ meaning ‘horse’. These ideas have given us many of our beliefs about what is ‘good’ conduct – loyalty, courage and defending the weak.
