The military structures of medieval chivalry of Knights and Samurai warriors.
Feudalism was well known in the medieval period in England and in Japan. It was the economic, social and political outline to rule respective places. The knights and the samurai were evolved from peasants. Both were hired by the most powerful families of their eras. They had similar lifestyles and code of conducts to perform. They were hired for the protection of the Daimyo or the Dukes. The loyalty was formed based on the relation between the vassals and the lords. The peasants provided food to the samurai which gave loyalty to the Daimyo. The samurai used to protect the peasants in return and the Shogun used to give land to the samurai for the protection. Similarly, the knight used to protect the peasants for food and they were rewarded by land by the kings. They both used to fight for their respective lords. The only difference was that the samurai used to do seppuku when they lost while the knights were freed on a ransom if it was important. Both the warrior class had traditional codes of honor.
