"Boys" were grown up by the time they were 7 years old. Some were put into apprenticeships, others who had been abandoned as babies became monks and stayed in the monasteries, the noble boys were sent to a holding of another noble to get training as a knight. At the age of 21 he became a knight. Some, because their noble parent died became the heads of countries. The serfs began working in the fields with the parents and were foot soldiers when bodies were needed to fight for the king. Most people were dead by 30 so life was hard and short.
