I find myself wondering, what it would be like to live in medieval Europe. The fantasy aspect of medieval times is beautiful, but realistic is a bit different. Women wouldn’t be warriors or knights. People couldn’t just carry actual swords on them unless they were military. Mercenaries were not welcomed and most of the time they weren’t in big cities. My guess is they were shrouded or would use a medium such as a scout of something. Females were normally maids, mothers or prizes. I’m sure the sights of all the vegetation and castles would be breathtaking. At this point, I do wonder how much of it was exaggerated that people’s overall understanding of medieval times has just now mixed in with the fantasy realm. For instance, the average life expectancy during that time period would be mid-twenties. Most women were wed or with child the moment they hit menstruation. So the current idea of men being married to 12 year olds being “sick and wrong” well, that was reality. Then again, back then the oldest guy they would have been with is possibly in their thirties but that was rare. It’s so interesting to realize how much things have changes. The fantasy/ romantic aspect of medieval times is wonderful .The knights, princesses, and glorious wars, creatures and magic, it all sounds like a wonderful dream, but even the real medieval times seems almost enchanting in its own dark way.
