The Feudal Hierarchy (2)

Feudalism was an economic and political system that organized people according to rank within Feudal society. People were expected to dutifully perform the roles and responsibilities of their rank within the hierarchy.  Where you belong in the hierarchy was not something that you could choose - you were born into your place.
