Ah fergit it. I'm done with being baited into turning this into a religious argument.

Quite a family tree on that guy. And if Philip IV had just married some random woman on the street instead, their kids would almost certainly have been fine.

In one my games the Duke of Aquitaine has had a bastard daughter - with her own daughter, with no seeming penalty at all. Squick.
I must admit that there should be a heavy malus for this. I am NOT saying that it shouldn't be impossible, sickos and incestual fathers do exist. But it should be heavily frowned upon and a sign of utmost villainy, so much that the odds of the father recognizing the child as its should be very, very low. Otherwise it should destroy a reputation and call for almost immediate excommunication, really.
I used to be a King of England like you. Then I took an arrow in the eye...
but then i want the option to kill everyone involved except myself!

Not intentional, but each was a marriage of expediency, so I am breeding like the Hapsburg.
What a simple family tree you have!
Does your king has the inbred trait?
Incest. A game the whole family can enjoy!

For moment I thought that Raolf was father of himself, twice.
So far i had only one inbred child in my family, can't remember who, but she died young, she was a few generations back, the reasons why this current lineup happened is that my eldest son and his son was killed by someone (not me) so my 2nd oldest son became king, but the eldest son had tons of property that was now his daughter's, so i did a marriage to keep my kingdom in order.
Yep, it gets confusing since I had a duke named Raolf who was heir, but he died (the king was the "the old" and outlived some of his sons) but Raolf son Raolf became king, had a son named Raolf, who made it to duke, but died so his brother became king, and married his brothers daughter to merge the two lines.
it does look like as if someone married the daughter of his brother. thats just dirty
My game as king of France (started as count of Lusignan) is now somewhere around 1380 or 1390 and by now my family has well over 100 living members, which leads to the AI marring family members with each other like crazy, it is rather disgusting.
One thing about the Egyptians, most of their dynasties seem to have died out within 5-6 generations. Also there was often a certain amount of fresh blood flowing into the royal line.
Thutmose II may have married his half sister Hatshepsut, but his successor Thutmose III was the progeny of a minor and probably unrelated wife. It is not clear whether Neferure the daughter of Thutmose II and Hatshepsut married Thutmose III and was the mother of his son Amenemhat, but in any case Neferure and Amenemhat predeceased Thutmose III and the eventual successor Ahmenhotep II was the offspring of a minor wife. In ancient Egypt the full inbred heirs seem to have died early and many of the brother sister couplings do not appear to have resulted in the eventual successor.
Tutankhamun was the product of a brother sister coupling between Akhenaten and an unknown sister, but he died early as well and his children with his half sister Anakhsenamun seem to have died early too.
Incest in ancient Egypt does not have been conducinve to fertile royal successions. Now the Ptolemies engaged in it, but there was often a certain amount of fresh blood coming into the gene pool via Cleopatra I, the unknown mistress of Ptolemy IX who was the mother of Ptolemy XII Auletes etc.
