i started as the duke of Flanders in the 1066 game. Now i expanded quite a lot; i get northern holland and my land stretches out till Lens and Troyes. I also changed liege so my liege is the emperor of the HRE because the king of France was to weak to protect me.
Now my question is how can i get large potions of land in a relative small time span. I know i can search claimants for each seperate county and attack that county and install the claimant as my vasal but that would take ages to usurp the french king title and that doesnt ever give me the opportunity to attach the HRE and claim emperor myself.
Now i know some of you would say that i should try to get good marriages with my heir but no princes of France would ever want a marriage with a duke's son. So what do you guys propose i should do?
