Game Version 1.0.3

What OS are you playing on?

Have you tried verifying your game files (Steam only)?

How much "pain" is this causing you?

Please explain the issue you experienced in the most condensed way possible
As a Norse Queen of Ireland I also conquered the Duchy of Brittany. I gave the dukedom of to my 2nd Son, then made him independent and decided to switch characters. As the now duke of Brittany i converted and swore allegiance to West Francia. All was going well until the Queen of Ireland died and I inherited the duchy of Leinster. I am now a vassal of Ireland again under by brother instead of Francia.

Please explain how to reproduce the issue
as a king give a dukedom to someone in your succession who is not your direct heir. grant them Independence. switch character to independent duke. swear fealty to another king. upon death of original king you will be made a vassal of their heir instead of your chosen king.

Is there anything else you think could help us identify/replicate the issue?
