I've just started playing CK2 (I have SoI installed, no mods), and I'm really loving it. However, I've run into some questions:
1) It looks like the rulers of southern Italian regions (plus Sicily) are classified as Normans. They all have names like William and Geoffrey. This is as true with a late-scenario start as it is from day one. This can't be WAD, can it?
2) In early game starts, the Duke of Flanders owes allegiance to the King of France, but his laws (such as changing rules of succession) are determined by the crown authority policies of the HRE. Is this WAD? I do notice that Flanders is covered by the HRE in the "De Jure Empires" map filter, but his liege is definitely France.
