I'd be the poor peasant who spends days in the fields gathering wheat then putting it in my cart pulled by a large Ox. I'd then take it to be milled and eventually would sell the grains at the market place.
Also, the monarchy would only bother with me once a year when it's time to gather taxes and I'm forced to choose between feeding my sick starving children or paying my taxes. Like a good loyalist, I opt to pay my taxes and continue to live my impoverished life and watch as my children die slowly.
Occasionally I'm heard out on the streets pleading, "Please, I need shoes." :p
