Adalbert von Habsburg, the oldest of Werner's bastards, wastes his base diplomatic value with a substandard education.
Meanwhile, in an unprecedented move, a prestige-lowering option in an event is chosen, bringing down Stefan von Habsburg's prestige from 5 to 0.
At least his life is better than his bastard uncle Manfred, whose depression is a bad thing because that means that until it clears up he won't sire me von Habsburg heirs...
But Adalbert's still good, and we go to the newly-independent County of Naissus to seek a bride, the 12-stewardship Helena Branas!
Which is accepted, bringing our prestige up to...six...
Branas is, of course, made our steward.
Just in time for to be building a forestry in Abydos, our newest province.
Meanwhile Hajnal, mother of Stefan and bearer of fragile children, realizing that her mediocre skills will not land her any positions, requests 'permanent retirement' at the ripe old age of 33. I refuse because why not? Just what possible harm could come from her staying?
Well, at least that was easy to fix.
