Choose the correct answer
Feudalism centred around ………………
Explanation: Feudalism was centred around vassalage, the vassal being invested with land (or a ‘fief’) in return for his obligations to his superior.
Option (b) is incorrect, because slavery refers to the system of owning another human being. The poorest people had little freedom under the system of vassalage, but it was not slavery.
Option (c) is incorrect, because serfdom refers to the peasants who were in the lowest rung of the feudal system. They were only one part of the larger system of vassalage.
Option (d) is incorrect because while land was an integral part of the feudal system, vassalage refers to the relationships held between the king and his inferiors (often connected by land).
