What about Knights Templar Grandmaster King Louis VI of France?
It took a lot of scheming, money and innocent lives to achieve this but now I have a cool title with primogeniture succession (although it's a duchy title so I got -10 relations hit :/) and free crusaders
Then one of his successors changed inheritance from Open Elective to Gavelkind, unfortunately all his children died in accidents :P so as his liege I inherited all.
That's rather interesting, Myrten. Every time I've given land to the monastic knightly orders, the game has considered them independent. Is there any trick to getting them to recognize your suzerainty?
So in my case I gave them Duchy of Anjou which seceded from France but came back when they agreed to become my vassal.
Ahh, I missed that detail in your original post. I have no idea why I never thought of doing that, it's a fantastic idea.
Alas, a quick check reveals that none of the Orders would be willing to go along with it in my Sicily game. Oddly, the Pope is perfectly willing to excommunicate the Hospitallers for me, though.

Yeah, AI grand master changed it from Open Elective to Gavelkind although I dunno how. Maybe Grandmaster was not his primary title?

NOT MY DOING! I've been busy schemeing on how to make the Shia Caliphate fall apart so the pope will get the balls to call a crusade for Jerusalem!
If everyone thinks alike, like kids try to do during school, then the world would be incredibally boring.

Not sure if this is a common occurrence when Muslims conquer Rome or not.
I conquered and re-converted Rome, but the Papacy remains Muslim 70 years later. There are no more Catholic crusades, but everything else seems to be working fine. Oh well - at least I don't have to worry much about my bishops sending their tax to the pope thanks to the infidel modifier.
