Fortunately, both acts of greed and maliciousness met justice by the hands of Louis. Louis exhibited another core attitude of the period’s people, the common attitude that evil acts must be faced with deserving justice, which often included violent punishments. With Ebles of Roucy, Louis fought to stop his crimes and “the plunderers themselves were plundered and the torturers tortured with the same or even more pain then they had used to torture others,” bringing swift justice to the band of criminals (Suger 35).

A key cause of the vassal’s loyalty to nobility was because the nobility protected their subjects from outside assaults on the village while the king did not protect them.
