I got the Byzantine Empire after making a faction demand and going to war over it. It seems that this brought its crown authority down to the lowest level since I was not Greek and my culture didn't allow for any higher level. Also, the succession got changed to confederate partition.

Is this WAD?

I don't see anything in here about titles having their crown authority or succession laws change when ruler culture changes.

you didn't say anything about your culture changing. what was it and what is it?

the laws available to you depend on you, not whatever real estate you own.

My culture didn't change. The title holder changed. The culture of the title's holder changed because the guy before me was Greek, and I was not Greek (Arpitan).

Obviously, some laws are changing as the title holder's culture changes. But this doesn't answer my question: is it WAD?

I noticed this in my last game too, I switched to Ashkenazi which for some reason starts as tribal with no innovations and that means when my crown authority was lowered by a faction I had to spend like 80 years coverting a county to Ashkenazi so I could be the culture head so I could get the innovation to raise it back.

I tested this again, and it seems that the succession of the Byzantine Empire changes from primogeniture to confederate partition even if you install an orthodox Greek ruler. So I guess that part seems to have nothing to do with culture.

But in this case the crown authority didn't drop, so it seems that culture can cause a drop in crown authority.
