Best Answer

In most of Europe, most of the land was controlled by the monarchs and the nobility. A lot of land was controlled by the Church, and I have read that in England the amount was upwards of 30%, an amount I find very easy to believe. In central Italy, the land was nearly all controlled by the Church.
