Feudalism is a decentralized sociopolitical structure in which a weak monarchy attempts to control the lands through reciprocal agreements with regional leaders. Feudalism refers to the Medieval European political system composed of a set of reciprocal legal and military obligations among the warrior nobility.The word feudalism was not a medieval term but an invention of 16th century French and English lawyers to describe certain traditional obligations between members of the warrior aristocracy. The earliest known use of the term feudal was in the 17th century (1614), when the system it purported to describe was rapidly vanishing or gone entirely. No writers in the period in which feudalism was supposed to have flourished are known to have used the word itself.
