What is all this talk about spending gold to give nobles counties? Just invite shmucks from the people finder, as many have suggested.
Also, don't give more than one county to one person, other than your immediate heir (and for him, make sure to only do it after he has been married, and, better yet, has a son or two).
Also, don't destroy the Kingdom title, as some have suggested. Don't destroy titles, period, really. I see no advantage to it. Even the titular ones. You get monthly prestige for having it, and as long as you have it you prevent a vassal from creating it in the middle of your realm.
You can not create a title equal to or higher then your lieges.

Prestige is not the most important thing to everyone.
I didn't say that, I said that I would never do so (because I don't see the advantage of that either), but everyone must do what they want. However IIRC you need a least another royal title to be able to destroy another one.

I was not talking about your response. It was an oversight on my part forgetting that Wales was not created. But if you also look at my original post, after I said destroy, I said create the Kingdom of Wales to stop de jure drift. Knowing that I and most people wouldn't destroy the title - at least not straight away - probably just get the kingdom setup and create Wales and gift that kingdom to someone else. Yea, I had a brain fart, it happens.

Emphasis added. This is particularly useful if you want characters of the same culture as your new lands. If you're planning on switching to having Aquitaine as your primary title, you're probably going to want to have your family become Occitan. No point giving out titles to a bunch of Welshmen in that case.
