World History

Were currently studying the early middle ages in western europe. I have been assigned a huge ammount of homework and need some help on two questoins.

Why would a lord grant an estate to a vassal?

Describe the Franks?

Neither was mentioned in class or the text. I think the second question is describe the Franks in the time frame of the early middle ages not now.

Time frame is like 700-1000
The book talks about the Manor an economic system.
The medieval church and stuff of the sort.

Thanks for help

    Ignoring the links to games (!!), there are many sites in here that will help you with your first question. What the question is asking about is a practice in feudalism.

    The Franks were the people who preceded the modern French people:
