Maybe anime? Boy unfairly beaten by king/noble (medievalish period), tied to bench and beaten until sun goes down Later seeks revenge on king, tricks him into being tied to a tree and beats him with umbrella.

Okay, I could not tell you what year this is from, but most likely it is pre-90s, I remember watching it at my grandparents house when I was young and it seemed old then.  I distinctly remember the boy being beaten while laying on a bench/stretcher, he may have had a sidekick like a goose too.  anyway he seeks revenge on the king guy and may actually beat him more than once, for sure for some reason he tricked the king guy into helping him measure a large tree and he tied the king guy to the tree and beat HIM with his umbrella.  Very strange.  Anyone know?  I may be wrong about the goose.

This is the story of Hungarian folk hero Lúdas Matyi.

There are several (live-action) adaptations of this popular poem/tale, but in 1977 renowned Hungarian animation director Attila Dargay made an animated version of the story, you probably saw this version:
"Lúdas Matyi", a.k.a "Matt the Gooseboy" (1977)

You can watch the complete animated movie in its original Hungarian here:

He has a goose companion.

Here is a screenshot where he tricks the king guy into measuring a tree and beats him with his umbrella:
