If i remember correctly, i think i read it in the Alexiad, that Anna Dalassena (the mother of all the Komnenos Brothers) arranged the marriage between the grandson of Botaneiates and the daughter of Manuel, her eldest son. I couldn't really find any info on possible sons of Nikephoros Botaneiates, so i made him a placeholder Daughter. But i'm not married to that setup by any stretch of the imagination.

Do you have any suggestions on how i should change it?

I guess i could make him a grandson, through a placeholder son, rather than a daughter. I can't really find any concrete info on Nikephoros Botaneiates' children
Well this was a puzzle to figure out. I checked the Alexiad and Anna does say that a grandson of the emperor was betrothed to Manuel's daughter but there are multiple sources (even the Alexiad itself) that state the emperor was childless. However I think I figured it out.

Nikephoros named as his chosen heir a distant relative (probably; Anna only says he was of the emperors race, I'm unsure if the translation means race or relation but lets go with relation) named Synadenus. I'm assuming this niece of Alexios was betrothed either to Synadenus or his son. Given that Anna describes him as 'verging on manhood' its probable that he was also very young but she also says he is "courageous in battle" which means he was old enough to have participated in battle. This Synadenus was most probably adopted into the imperial Botaneiates family and betrothed to the daughter of Manuel. However we know very little about this Synandenus since he all but disappears from the record here on out.

I'm not sure what to do about the setup, probably best to just remove the betrothal altogether since this daughter of Manuel was also a relative of Romanos Diogenes through her mother, making very important as a marriage candidate in Byzantine politics and I can't imagine she would have remained betrothed to an unknown man of a former emperor who had no allies or wealth to speak of.


Wait hold on. I was wrong. The grandson is described as having a tutor which would have put him below the age of 14 in 1081, when the tutor is mentioned. So then this grandson could not be Synadenus due to the fact that Synadenus was old enough to have been in battle (I do not think he would have been much older, just above the age of legal majority, say 18 or 19). Nikephoros III was quite old in 1078 when he was deciding on an heir and did not have the luxury of thinking he could wait for his grandson to grow up and probably chose to appoint the not-as-young Synadenus as heir. The grandson is probably actually a grandson, a fact which makes sense if you consider the descriptions of him being childless as meaning that he had no living children.

So to summarise: Nikephoros III ascends in 1078, he had a son who predeceased and also left a young son behind. Nikephoros III, due to his advanced age and youth of his grandson, turns to his distant relative Synadenus as heir. The grandson is betrothed to Manuels daughter since he is still of the imperial family and an important alliance therefore. All 3, Synadenus, the grandson, the Komnene daughter, disappear from the record after 1081. Yay.

So in-game Manuels daughter should be betrothed to Nikephoros III's grandson (by a son as he was described as Botaneiates although ERE nobles did sometimes go by their mothers family names, especially if it was more prestigious)
from 1078 but probably not in 1081, just because after Alexios' accession his niece is too important to wed to the only relation of a former Emperor who had no other family from the looks of it. Perhaps the grandson was made to enter the monastery along with his grandfather. A church career was not unheard of for annoying claimants.

Sounds reasonable, will implement this

All the information is very fascinating, but i would like for you to very precisely just say what it is you are suggesting. That is kind of missing in your post

I can infer (i think) that you feel like Iraq from Basra to Furat and Tikrit should get more provinces. It is a bit of a mess trying to figure out which of the current provinces you would like to see kept, which you would like to see replaced and which you would like to see added.

Its good that you are basing this on a source though. Ibn Khurdadhbeh is something we can definetely check ourselves too

I'm not opposed to us giving attention to Iraq. When we added more provinces, i was pushing for Maysan to be included

Hello¡
A have a suggestion about the umayads vassals in 867:
The Banu Danis should control lisboa and alcacer do sal in 867: In the actual gameplay is impossible that they could conquer this areas as historically did they, because they only control the province of Coimbra, and are going to be destroyed by his neighbor Suranbaqi.

Thank you for your suggestion. Our understanding, however, is that Banu Danis's migration to Lisbon area took place later than 867. We have in our files Banu Danis governors of Lisbon and Alcacer do Sal from the early 10th century.

OK, I am trying to make the start dates from 867 till 936 scrollable. I don't however want to sink so much time into it only to find out that the next update of SMWH has it.
Are you guys working on a scrollable dates from 867 till 936?

Nope. I toyed around with the idea of a 914 bookmark, so i have done some legwork for that. But it is by no means finished.

But if your setup is based on reasonably accurate research, then i'm more than willing to include your history files into the main mod.

If you guys wanna help me, then i'm more than willing to receive help. Never doubt that
