    Annexing the Papal States

    What would happen in this current game of mine if I annexed the Papal States? There are NO Christian theocracies left (I formed Germany and TO is dead), so what would happen? Would a random Christian nation be chosen to take its place?

    I had this situation in one of my last games and the answer is simple:

    There won´t be a Papacy anymore and the Papacy Tab will be greyed out...

    Isn't that a hardcoded change around the 17th century, not because of the Papal States being annexed?

    They must have changed or fixed it, I can remember in the past the Papal States were eliminated and the Papal Tab was still there, with no way to gain relations with the pope, leading to many excommunications- it was pretty annoying.

    OK, just to be safe I vassalised them. The prestige and infamy bonuses make it worth keeping.

    Thanks guys!

    I just hoped one of my enemies wouldn't become them.

    If you are Catholic and annex the pope, with no other theocracies left, you'll keep getting an event which will give infamy/stab hits if you choose not to release the papal state. The event is recurrent, so it's best to vassalize.

    Italy is the one exception to Catholic nations.

    This event should be called the Cry-Baby Pope.

    1.) That event only happens if you own Rome.
    2.) If you control enough cardinals to keep a lock on the papacy, having no Pope means you can excommunicate any Catholic, since no one can get 100 relations with the Pope. Not so powerful with the latest patch, since you can't use that to just eat all the Catholics with impunity anymore.
