About This Quiz

The Middle Ages. It was a good life if you were a king, a knight or a lord. However, when everyday life was ruled by the feudal system it wasn’t as much fun being a peasant, shopkeeper, stable boy or pig farmer. So, what profession would be yours during the Middle Ages? Take the quiz and find out. 


As a lord or noble, you would be expected to attend to matters related to your land, from hearing reports about harvest and supplies to reports about taxes and dues. Plus, the lord would also be expected to exercise his judicial powers over his vassals and peasants. As a peasant, you might work in the field from sun up to sundown with only a bowl of pottage and a crust of bread keeping your hunger at bay. It was worse if you were a woman, as you could not eat until your husband and children ate first. Still can’t picture yourself in medieval times? This quiz will help by asking insightful questions about your opinions, traits, characteristics and more. Then match your answers to professions that fit who you see yourself as in the Middle Ages.
