Thread: Female Heirs

  1. #1

    Female Heirs

    I only got CK2 yesterday, so still figuring alot of stuff out. i'm an irish duke and have about 7 daughters and no sons. I need to marry my eldest off soon as she is now 16, however i'm worried that whoever she marries will end up taking my territory from me. Will that happen? and if so, whats the best way to avoid it???

    many thanks for any input.

    Get your female heir in a matrimonial marriage. That way her offspring belong to your dynasty.
    If you marry off your heir(s) they won't steal land from you.

    True that. but it'll most likely be their heirs that will do that IF your daughter has a claim. You'll benefit from an alliance in the mean time.

    Talking about marriage, it'll benefit you to checkout Alexspeed's marriage guide.

    "Matrimonial marriage"

    Is there another kind?

    Tempestra: Memorizing the spelling and pronounciation of legal terms that have become essentially obsolete centuries ago can be hard, y'know.
    Everyone now: "dee-main!"

    Especially when you see them spelled correctly in a game that you play on a regular basis! That's got to make it a real pain.

    They meant matrilineal marriage

    Whose irony radar is off now, Tempestra? Yours or mine? I'm unsure.
    @jonlucero: To my ears, "matrilineal" and "matrimonial" sound quite different from each other.
