Perk of being the Regent
I'm a duke and just became the regent of the kingdom, what perks do I have?
If you also hold a councilor position, you can't be fired from it.

Your plot power is higher.
Well, you also get a small monthly gold and prestige bonus, but admittedly it's quite small.
I'm not sure about this but when I was regent of france I assasinated the 10 year old King and became King myself... I was playing House Vermandois and I think he was the last male of his house.
Considering you should be effectively ruling the kingdom, the regent mechanic wasn't implemented to it's full implications because it would break everything. But there might be room for improvement.
The king of france in my current game didn't have a counsilor all the time he was alive because he offered me this position after throwing me in prison. It was a fabrication from a pathetic relative and the king believed his word over mine apparently...I paid the 145 gold to get released and the stupid AI king offered me the same position and i declined the first 3 times untill i just ignored his request completely. He continued to offer me the counsilor seat for 30+ years on a regular basis.
He should have just executed you :/
