    Regarding the Succession Laws

    In CK 1 the default succession law for Irish Lords was "Salic Consanguinity" law.It really bugged me because when I was playing as Count (Now Earl I guess) of Dublin, his father always named the other child as heir.Is this law gone now?

    I think its still there, but Im not 100% sure, it might be called something else

    Thanks for the answer If it's still there It might be fun to use If the Earl's father names his other child heir you could decleare war to press claims.A nice story.

    AFAIK succession laws are now more modular. There are Agnatic (male only), Cognatic, and Agnatic-Cognatic (male preferred) laws. And there is the option to have the succession be controlled by Primogeniture (oldest child inherits), Seniority (oldest relative inherits), Elective (nominate an heir), or Gavelkind (split titles equally between heirs).

    So Salic Consanguinity the way CK1 had it apparently no longer exists in that setup, though you could probably achieve similar results with an Agnatic-Elective succession.

    Last I saw the Irish used Seniority. The eldest member of the dynasty inherits. In some ways this is more historical then the old consanguinity, because various branches of the family can alternate, but it's still not a great way to simulate tanistry.
