The nation-state developed fairly recently. Prior to the 1500s, in Europe, the nation-state as we know it did not exist. Back then, most people did not consider themselves part of a nation; they rarely left their village and knew little of the larger world. If anything, people were more likely to identify themselves with their region or local lord. At the same time, the rulers of states frequently had little control over their countries. Instead, local feudal lords had a great deal of power, and kings often had to depend on the goodwill of their subordinates to rule. Laws and practices varied a great deal from one part of the country to another.

Even the textbooks agree with me

Now, where's your proof to disprove it?



The King was in complete control under the Feudal System. He owned all the land in the country and decided who he would lease land to. He therefore only allowed those men he could trust to lease land from him. However, before they were given any land they had to swear an oath to remain faithful to the King at all times. The men who leased land from the King were known as Barons, they were wealthy, powerful and had complete control of the land they leased from the King.

oh look, i found something on the internet that says exactly what i wanted to say, too.

regardless of some case examples, or the collection of lords holding the power, i highly doubt you can find any significant number of individual lords who were more powerful than their king. king >>> lord in the hierarchy. that is fact. i can google more if you want to be in denial about your mistake, though.

Because feudal, which means land, was about who owned the most land.


By the year 1,000 in France, where feudalism was most developed, the king was no more powerful than one of his greater lords, and France was divided and subdivided into over 10,000 tiny feudal "kingdoms."

Again, show me something that says different.

Easy answer to this..


A Lord is more powerful than a king when the lord has conquered five thrones and a King only conquered one...... with a *

Read what your link says about the Barons


Barons leased land from the King which was known as a manor. They were known as the Lord of the Manor and were in complete control of this land. They established their own system of justice, minted their own money and set their own taxes. In return for the land they had been given by the King, the Barons had to serve on the royal council, pay rent and provide the King with Knights for military service when he demanded it. They also had to provide lodging and food for the King and his court when they travelled around the country. The Barons kept as much of their land as they wished for their own use, then divided the rest among their Knights. Barons were very rich.

Established the rules, printed the money, and set taxes. So who is really controlling things? What is your definition of a figurehead because that sure does sound like it to me.

If that's how you want to spin it

I backed up my point with multiple sources and textbooks. Even your own source gives credence to what I'm saying.

One question, who is more powerful in the US, the president or the Supreme Court judges?

the US system has checks and balances so that no one branch has absolute power. completely different from the feudal system. nice try, though

No one had absolute power in a feudal system. You're thinking of a monarchy The president appoint the justices, but he doesn't have absolute power. The king leases the land, but he doesn't have absolute power. If a lord wanted to overthrow a king, he could.
