Thank you for your reply. I'm now facing the same problem with my new heir; after my firstborn son died of an illness at age 22, I can't seem to betroth my new heir. The weird thing is, I can see the rings button you mentioned on the character screen of my other children, but it's just not there when I'm looking at my heir! I took a screenshot to illustrate the situation. I tried bringing my heir closer to me as a member of my council before he died, but to no avail. Is this a bug?
Nope, the Patriarch can excommunicate too.
To every man upon this earth / Death cometh soon or late. / And how can man die better / Than facing fearful odds, / For the ashes of his fathers / And the temples of his gods...?
Hey, is there a mod or a modification I can make myself that will let me name all children of my dynasty, or those born at my court? Names tend to get repeated often and it can get hard sorting through five grandsons all named "Murchad" or "Harald".

Is it ever worth destroying a king title? I'm King of Norway/England, both elective, and England isn't picking my heir... I'm okay with the prestige loss, but is the -50 relations worth it? Does the relations penalty ever expire?
Also, does the tyrant penalty ever expire?
"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power" - Franklin. D Roosevelt, 1938
Landed sons will not necessarily go through with betrothals. They often break them, even when it makes no sense. My duke son betrothed with high-statted duchess broke to marry a lowborn. So be warned.
It is worthwhile destroying a King title as it restarts Kingdom dejure drift, and more importantly it is one less Kingdom title for your subjects to lust after. Makes sense to do sometimes.
Is there anyway to force my king go abdicate in favor of my heir?
