Why I (as Shia) can declare holy war against fellow Shia ruler?
Oh. By reading wiki i have got some understanding now.
He is known demon worshiper. Which allow me to HW him even he has same religion.

UPD - also winning common Holy War against his capital duchy made him my vassal. Which is somehow weird.

The Islamic Holy War CB vassalises where possible.

I didn't realise you could holy war demon worshippers though! Useful.

Where possible. But here I vassalized whole kingdom of Denmark with one holy war CB.
And he has not only what was inside de-jure Denmark but also half-dozen provinces outside.
But of course his demesne was only one province in a duchy I want.

Ah, that is strange. Yeah, normally you'd expect to just get those counties and for him to usurp a random vassal county outside that duchy...

I think a Crusade failing (without player involvement) counts as a Strange Screenshot. The mess of heresies in what's left of the Catholic world is interesting as well.

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

My son, with whom I already have an alliance/non-aggression pact, refusing a betrothal because... he wants a better non-aggression pact? Is he looking to marry his sister or something?
