Hi. I've a very simple suggestion, easy and quite useful.

Looks like the only court advisors and consort we are able to know about is the one in OUR country. Indeed if we go in diplomacy tab of other countries we get info about who is the KING and the HEIR of a nation, but we have no infos about the Consorts and the court of that specific country.
So basically we have NO way to know if the king of Austria, France, Spain etc... is married and if yes with WHO.
Ofc we can go to check their royal marriage and see if they have consort ties modifiers with other nations but that require too many micro management.

I suggest to expand the "court tab" to all other nations and not only to our country, giving us infos about King, Heir, Consorts and Advisors. How many monarch points they have is secondary, but the court should be a public info.
This can lead to a more deep "game of thrones" where consorts play a dynastic role as they did in real history, which now is no detailed and not implemented in game.

The Heir of a country have a Father and a Mother, and this should be an info in game. If the sister of my king is the consort of the king of France and have a son, during an eventual regency there should be some "claim throne" or at least a "get your dynasty on that throne" option.

Listen, im not asking for family trees but just for a expanded game of thrones concept as it was in real history.
Eu4 has all those infos already in game, so why not USE them for the DYNASTIC part of the game?
I'm not asking for interactions like in the mod Lex Talionis, but just an expanded use of this feature.

If you guys at paradox are working on an expansion please consider to expand the mechanics you already have in game, because this part of the game is very important as it was in history and very understimated in game.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you.

At the very least all the data that the game already has (like consorts in other countries) should be made visible in the GUI.
Even more so now that cultures and religions of characters were added.

Exactly. It would take less than 30 minutes to code a visible GUI for all those datas.
If this is too much, it would take even less to just add a "he has consort xxx from yyy" once hovering the mouse over a king.
