    Yep. I've had a ruler with over 12k before too. It's not overly difficult.

    The name? You mean, the Holy of Holy?

    Now, that is a reasonable explanation. I guess I should always check for myself whether my son is actually son.

    And some screenies of my own:

    Not really strange but I thought awesome

    And one more

    The war to depose who?
    Nice to see Genoa in action, in my last game they were actually turned into Prince-Bishopic by their own vassal. And in the light of previous explanation, I guess the King tried to avoid wroth of his duchess by changing his identity, however she saw through it.

    But again thats mostly because he won the kingdom of Jerusalem and the Pope loved him for it. But the 3k prestige is pretty high if all you've done is lay around in the castle all day
    Well, actually he gets over 15 prestige monthly just for being Kaiser, which is 180 prestige yearly, and were he ruling from like 1yo (which was pretty possible as his father died shortly after Claes's birth, too bad his grandfather lived into his eighties), he would accumulate around 5k just for slacking in his castle. But yeah, he had to fight few wars to get there, mostly subjugation of revolts in England.

    Behold King Bosón, the first of his name, King of Spain, Aquitaine, Mauretania and Egypt, Lord Protector of the Holy Land and....Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitaller? :P


    The title even seems to have changed to hereditary...and I suppose Lords all over christianity can now raise a crusader army with my King in the lead

    It's hard to see, but this is my entire living family. My count and his siblings and daughters all have many children...but I've been ridiculously unlucky in my coin flips.


    Can you spot what's wrong here? Might be hard to see, though.


    This made me chuckle and wonder how she could have bugged out and gotten this title at the same time. AFAIK it didn't last, though.

    I don't really see the problem in the first one, aside from you having no sons, but that isn't really all that odd. Maybe I'm missing something?
    In the second one, is that first woman listed as Princess of Rebels?

    1. Well, to explain in more detail...My count has had 6 children. They are all daughters. He has 2 grandchildren. Both are daughters. His two sisters and brothers have had 4 children in total. They are all daughters. This was the point I was vocally shouting "Can I have a fucking male heir PLEASE?" There were lots of unmarried countesses (or heiresses) in France but all I was getting was daughters. This trend hasn't stopped either - my Dukes get an average of 4-5 children, only one of which is male and often very young when the father is in his late 40s or 50s.

    2. Yes, the first two women listed are Princesses of Rebels. I wonder who the King is.

    My mom was married to my half-brother.

    This is what happens when you marry your mistress off to your son you had with your wife, then you legit your bastards, and you become your bastard because your first son and original heir died.

    This is my first real game, so I'm learning still.

    Lol, its actually an Empire of rebels, if you look at the COA its emporer level. Rofl, reminds me of how in Rome Total War you could play as the rebels...wonder how much prestige you would get from marrying a princess of rebels? And how the hell did that happen???

  11. #971
    fairly close to what happened in my last game ...

    My kings wife (who i've 'helped' into a posssision of being a hair of Lotharia) dies after having given birth to a now adult son

    King marries young Queen of Hungary (who's my second cousin once removed in the same dynasty) breeding a son on her before dying

    Oldest son marries stepmother and keeps breeding kids on her

    The left flank of my army is led by some Swiss merc captain, while the center is led... by the same Swiss merc captain? Sure it isn't just his twin? And it lasted for few battles till I rearranged flank leaders.

    From my Duchy of Flanders game:



    Even though no Christian soldiers have set foot in the Holy Land for twenty years, the Seljuks have yet to usurp the title from me, so I'm still King of Jerusalem. I like to imagine that for the five years or so we were there, we took the True Cross, Holy Lance, etc., and put them all in a full-scale replica of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Brugge. Flanders is the new Jerusalem. (All other countries: Lousy Flanders... /Homer Simpson)

  15. #975
    I don't think they can; you need to be Christian to create/usurp the title IIRC

    its screenshots like these that make me scratch my head and wonder lol...maybe she can become Pope someday

    I mean I can tell the confusion her face does look kinda manly so maybe they just thought the bishop had long hair and forgot to do the testes check

    When a new Pope was elected, the Countess of Orvieto led a war to depose him, so I joined on her side curious as to the success-results. Turns out we end up with a female Pope with a Prince of the Papacy and four Princesses of the Papacy, one of whom is also the Kaiserin of the Holy Roman Empire.

    Pope declares crusade on the Shia Caliphate for the Kingdom of Byzantium which isn't owned by anybody... bear in mind that the Shia caliphate has been pushed way back into a small section of Abyssinia and definitely doesn't have anything to do with the Kingdom Of Byzantium.

    It doesn't need to be. Often crusades will be called against Khazaria, a de jure kingdom with no kings and which can't be created/usurped by any other means.
    For awesome CK II graphical stuff please click here and here.

    I'm currently working on my own set of semi-historical scenarios for CK II. ETA: Q1 '15.
