How and why did feudalism begin?
Feudalism began after and because of the fall of the Roman Empire. After society collapsed and the people were no longer protected by a centralized government, they turned to kings and nobles for protection. The king would grant land to nobles, the nobles would agree to fight for the king should the need arise, and the people would work the land and be under the protection of the kings and nobles.
