Why did surfs fight in the crusades?
The surfs fought in the Crusades because they wanted the same rights as the nobles.
people wanted to fight in the crusades for many different reasons, such as: EVERYBODY WAS EAGER TO FIGHT IN THE CRUSADES BECAUSE THEY GET GRANTED INTO HEAVEN IF THEY DIE IN THE CRUSADES Knights fought in the crusades because of their love for war also for their lady.Fighting in this war meant honour and pride as well as the reasons above.
Before feminist movements, men were considered the warriors and the providers. With this in consideration, women would not have been able to fight in the Crusades, whether they wanted to or not. However, men would have wanted to fight in the Crusades as they would have been considered Holy Warriors, fighting to reclaim lost Holy territory from what they considered to be heathen thieves - Muslim 'invaders.'
The Crusades had, both, positive and negative outcomes on the economy. The Crusades aided in ending feudalism and bringing out the Renaissance. The Crusades pulling in the Knights to fight the wars left Monarchs in power and bringing in new, foreign, items made the merchants grow rich from the new trades.
Mostly knights and soldiers went on the Crusades. In the Children's Crusades (1202) England sent children to try and capture Jerusalem, but they never returned. But in most of the Crusades Knights and soldiers went with their huge armies to go and fight the Muslims so they could get Jerusalem(the Holy Land) back, and they thought that the Muslim religion was wrong.
