Aside from assassination, what's the best way to get rid of a crappy heir? I want my 3rd son to inherit because he has great stats. Luckily, the first son died on his own. I need to get rid of the second son who has already produced an heir of his own. This one is an absolute buffon... Stewardship of zero! I'm trying to make him the Spymaster and spy on rival techs. I've lost countless Spymasters that way. I figure with his miserable scores he's toast. What about his son though?
