The Governor asked the army ban of the “free” and referred it to the court date and the people’s Assembly. Only these outdoor were want, but also subject to a weapon. the position of the Crown was similar to completely by German counts in the early middle ages. While but in Germany the dignity of counts and that for the holder of the same certain goods and lands have been hereditary, this was not the case in Poland. the dignity of count was an AMT, the counts family became not the hereditary land glory and not trained to an actual “high nobility”.

The reason for these differences was the following: while the old state law with its main distinction between “Free” and “Unfree” by feudal law gradually was supplanted in Germany, and originally “Unfree”, but influential court officials who had obtained the knighthood, by Decree and Noblitierung so about not chivalrous, but “Free” rebelled, the feudal system not permeated in Poland, it was also not a nonfree knighthood. Kind of Knight and Knight custom found quick distribution in Poland and found particular expression in the battles against the pagan Pomerania, Prussia, and other ethnic groups. A knightly nobility, which after the last uprising of the unfree was bloodily crushed in 1077, took away any political rights the unfree and pressed it down to members, evolved from the stand of the free now. To assign the knighthood fixed boundaries, proof of birth as a nobleman and 1412 also evidence of entitlement to bear a certain arms necessary was, declared belonging to this, in 1347. The attempt to enforce a high nobility in Poland. Since the emergence of chivalry in Poland, only the nobility in the possession of political rights, was just want, the non-precious man was excluded from the knightly weapon craft. The nobility was also subject to a weapon and subject to certain conditions.
