Innokentios once more hatching crazy mad plans, but succeeding, this time the Abbasid Caliph fell victim.
Court Chaplain says he shouldn't be, but his father is really proud of his eldest, who perfectly makes up for his destiny as the odd one in the family.
But why by all means Nubia!

And yes his eldest daughter vanished without a trace and he's just 30 yet. As mentioned, Court Chaplain say he shouldn't, but his dad's really proud :D

Tragically the AI, no matter if it's your kid or not, doesn't realize you only want their best. The rule for this is, landed rulers will desire a marriage that grants them a non aggression pact. Regardless to whom, that's why the 35 year old lowborn mothers of baby counts are ideal picks for AI heirs in their own opinion.
Basically you want to fully prevent him from marrying if possible, until he's 20 when he will agree to marry a woman of your pick if she doesn't hit his prestige too hard.

Not strange per se. Just thought it was rather funny. I can almost build my own Jesus. I have his foreskin, his robe, the crown of thorns and two nails from the cross (one in the Lombard crown)

And he won, what makes me his successor and him my second heir.
As he got his own new bloodline, you definitely wanna make him have kids though!

No, this doesn't make any more sense in context.

How many counties is the Count Count of? Too many to count.

The AI being even dumber than usual. It seems they were letting themselves be conquered because they couldn't comprehend that 16,000 men could not fit on one boat.

What a hypocrite.

Clearly the AI was trying for the Aladdin achievement, but took a wrong turn, and then just gave up on it.

Aww, poor count, can't form a duchy because his liege is a duke, probably can't go for an independence war because his levy is so reduced due to being over the demesne limit... He's stuck!

Plus he’s Salian?? As in, the dynasty of Holy Roman Emperors, right? Dude’s a long way from home...

The CoA is a random one though so it might be just a random roll for the same dynasty name.

You right but I just change succession to primo...
Also his rulership not lasted long. Five years after coronation he lost all lands and half-face to Sunni Caliph in Jihad only to had the latter lost it to Aztecs Invasion another five years later.
I gave him a duchy. Son after all.

And that's not an end.
After the death of 'Angel of Jerusalem' Pope again have declared a crusade to Holy lands.
And his bastard son has returned on father's throne.
For now...

Meanwhile Ioustinos installed totally not secretly his son in Rome as his Top Priest (only to abandon christiany the very same day). The young man overexceeds any expectations and shares his liege's opinion of the rest of the clergy.
So much that he started to antagonize and duel his cardinals right away.
Can't think of a better man for the job.

Seen on discord tonight. Obviously, the game can be kind sometimes- the player in this is Zoroastrain too, and now all of a sudden has 40,000 allies!
