After William I was crowned King of England on Christmas Day 1066, he introduced the [Feudal System] as a way of ruling his new country. He rewarded followers with [land] in return for their [fealty] (loyalty). [Tenants-in-chief] (barons and bishops) were given land in return for [soldiers]; [under-tenants] (knights) were given land in return for fighting for [forty] days each year; [villeins] (peasants) were expected to work on the under-tenants' land in return for being allowed to live in the village. Each level of the system gave something in return for their land..
