    In feudal territories in medieval Europe, a common feature was the presence of a warrior caste, which consisted of knights and nobles who were trained in combat and responsible for defending the land. Another common feature was the existence of income-generating fiefs, which were granted by the lord to vassals in exchange for their loyalty and military service. However, limited service/devotion to the lord was not a common feature in feudal territories. In this system, vassals were expected to provide military service and swear loyalty to their lord in exchange for land and protection.
