Why did feudalism fall?

Hello! Feudalism fall? I’m not so sure that is how I would describe it, but the feudalism system goes away as Europe opens up to the “riches” of the rest of the world. Also the plague wipes out population numbers so serfs become more independent when there are fewer of them and more need from nobles. We see the start of change as they aren’t as tied to the land. This is just a bit of the information. As Europe continues to change serfdom dies out (except in Russia - lasts longer there). Hope this helps a bit. Best of luck on the test.
