Etymology[edit]

Medieval Latin feudum, feodum, fevum, feum etc. is borrowed from Old French or Old Provençal feu/fieu, which is borrowed from Frankish *fehu (livestock, cattle)[1], which stems from Proto-Germanic *fehu.

The -d- in feudum, feodum has been inserted under influence of Latin allodium[2].

Latin feudum is cognate to Catalan feu which is borrowed from Frankish *fehu (livestock, cattle).[3]
