I would like your opinions on who my heir should marry as this is the part of the game which I guess could have great ramifications later in the game so I don't want to get it wrong!
The situation as it stands is I am a duke in Ireland and have taken over/vassalised most of the counties in Ireland (just saving up to create Kingdom title) and my son is 14 and has been betrothed to the Duchess of Cornwall for ages. However she decided to try and take over some of the King of Englands lands and lost, got vassalised and imprisoned so I can't marry her and therefore will break the betrothal.
Who should I try and betroth my son to? I have looked at the potential wives and there are only duchy titled people (or lower) available. There are several Scottish princesses too which would result in an alliance, but I want to take over Scotland at some point so I guess that would cause an issue. I'm really at a loss at what to do here so any advice would be great.
Also, as a side note, what is the best way to get a good chancellor? I have tried marrying someone into my court, but she wasn't available for some reason. I have also tried inviting someone directly, but not found a single one who would move over.
Finally, do you think it is feasable to invade the non-catholic parts of Spain? It seems like the Moors have taken over 80% of it so it would be easy to attack and create a few titles, but I'm not sure if the distance to travel/reinforce would be an issue.
Thanks very much.
