This paper discusses rebellion in medieval Europe and looks at the broad forces that made so many of them (if not all of them) possible. From there, the paper also explores the issues of excessive taxation, the unwillingness of the nobility to respect the old responsibilities they once owed their serfs and underlings, the general corruption that made government work as a tool for the elites and not on behalf of the urban poor, and the leadership that drained the public treasury (or at least the pockets of ordinary citizens) while contributing nothing to the well-being of the state as a whole.

From the Paper:

"In the final analysis, a review of the Flemish revolt of 1323-1328, the uprising of the ciompi in Florence during the late 1370s, and the peasants' revolt of the early 1380s in England have many more similarities than differences - though some of the differences are interesting, too."
