Abstract

The military system was subject to profound change in the beginning of modern times. The feudal armies of knights during the Middle Ages had become pure mercenary armies. Thus, warrior status was no longer linked to a social origin, and traditional ideas about the legitimacy and the social location of the military were questioned.
