 feudalism. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The feudal method of holding land was by fief; the grantor of the fief was the suzerain, or overlord, and the recipient was the vassal.
The fief was formally acquired following the ceremony of homage, in which the vassal, kneeling before the overlord, put his hands in those of the lord and declared himself his man, and the overlord bound himself by kissing the vassal and raising him to his feet.
With the advent of hereditary succession and primogeniture, renewal of the fief by the heir of the deceased became customary, and little by little the fief became hereditary.

 Feudal System, An Overview of Feudalism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Certain vassals who held their fiefs directly from the crown were tenants in chief and formed the most important feudal group, the barons.
A fief held by tenants of these tenants in chief was called an arriere-fief, and, when the king summoned the whole feudal host, he was said to summon the ban et arriere-ban.
The rules of inheritance tended to safeguard an undivided fief and preferred the eldest among the sons (primogeniture).

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Ecclesiastical Tenure
Fiefs bestowed by the Church on vassals were called active fiefs; when churchmen themselves undertook obligations to a suzerain, the fiefs were called passive.
It was as passive fiefs that many bishoprics, abbacies, and prelacies, as to their temporalities, were held of kings in the medieval period, and the power thereby acquired by secular princes over elections to ecclesiastical dignities led to the bitter strife over investitures.
These passive fiefs were conferred by the suzerain investing the newly-elected churchman with crozier and ring at the time of his making homage, but the employment of these symbols of spiritual power gradually paved the way to exorbitant claims on the part of the secular overlords (see INVESTITURES, CONFLICT OF).

 Feudal Lords rules
Fiefs adjacent to the ocean are considered coastal fiefs.
Permission to move through a fief is given if the fief is a vassal, subvassal, or overlord of the army's fief, or if they are both vassals of the same overlord, or if the fief owes a favor to the army's fief (which then uses the favor owed to permit movement).
Your movement ends in the last fief you move to, or the last legal fief (if you try to move to a non- adjacent fief), or in any fief on your route for which you don't have permission to move through.

 Recruit In Current Fief   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
There is one way you can recruit in a fief you own that speaks a different language than you, but has a Loyalty value of 7 or greater, you can recruit in that fief.
You can recruit more than once in a season but after you recruit in one fief, there are no men left to hire, so you must move two fiefs in some direction before trying again (recruit, use 4 days, get 300 men, move 2 fiefs, recruit, get 250 men in another 6 days etc).
Someone else, even you if you move and come back, can recruit in a fief a second time in a season, but the second time someone recruits there the number of men obtained is lower and the time taken is longer, each time.

 "Fief Or Feud, F. De Bursa/De Camera/Francum/Ligium" Defined & Explained
FIEF or FEUD - In its origin, a fief was a district of country allotted to one of the chiefs who invaded the Roman empire as a stipend or reward; with a condition annexed that the possessor should do service faithfully both at home and in the wars, to him by whom it was given.
The law of fiefs supposed that originally all lands belonged to lords, who had had the generosity to abandon them to others, from whom the actual possessors derive their rights upon the sole reservation of certain services more or less onerous as a sign of superiority.
To this superiority was added that which gives the right of dispensing justice, a right which was originally attached to all fiefs and conferred upon those who possessed it, the most eminent part of public power.
