8. Before capitalism and the bourgeousie came land and nobility

 

The king owned all the land in the realm. The king could pass it all on to his son.

The king could grant the use of land to a noble. The noble could pass on the grant to his son.

The serfs worked the land for the nobility. The were allowed to keep a portion of the crops and livestock that they raised. The serf's son inherited his father's serfdom.
