This is a system called the Manor System. The lord of the manor would hire knights. To attracted workers the lord would say that his soldiers would protect the serfs who lived on the farm. In return the serfs would have to farm on the land. So the knights made the manor militarily self sufficient and the serfs' farming made them economically selfsufficient

How was the french government different or the same following the revolution?

It was different in that the absolute power of the King had been replaced by the rule of Law as executed by mostly elected officials, controlled ( in theory, at least) by the French Parliament. But government took several different forms after the Revolution of 1789: first rule by Parliament together with a largely powerless King, then the largely illegal rule of the Comité du Salut Public during the period called The Terror in 1793/94, then the Directorate, then the Consulate, then the Empire under Napoleon. Even if the power of some of the rulers was almost absolute, it was now always defined by laws, even if these were (as during The Terror) emergency laws.
