Aristocracy and feudalism are known to be two forms of government that are available. Aristocracy is the type of government wherein the best citizen will be the one who is assigned to rule. Take note that aristocracy is different from the monarchy. Feudalism is known to be a type of system wherein there are different vassals, nobles, and lords that will be part of the feudal society.

Lords are considered to be nobles so they are in charge of doing a few things to improve society as a whole. Over the past years, aristocracy has changed from just the ruling of one citizen to the ruling of the family members of the aristocratic citizen.

Aristocracy and Feudalism are two different forms of government. The aristocracy was a form of government where the best citizen or the most admirable citizens ruled. Feudalism refers to a form of government where a give and take arrangement worked in which the warrior nobility protected the vassals in exchange for their services. In current times, an aristocracy is not ruled by the best; the wealthy or the plutocracy governs it.

An aristocracy is a type of government in which the most qualified or the best citizen was regarded to be the ruler. Later, the perception changed to aristocratic families being the ones with wealth, and there were only a privileged few that that rule. Feudalism was designated as a social system in which the lords, vassals, and fiefs were the critical component in society.
