Satans know how to get claims
Heh. Was just me (as Holy Roman Emperor) marrying into a genius with a good claim to potentially press.

(currently playing as demon child and murdering Byzantine Emperors until I can finally press the (weak) claim)

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)
Your own Personal Jesus.

Not directly strange, but Is there a record board for the lowest opinion? :D

20200822235821_1.jpg


Background: As Zunist Rajasthan (named Zunbil after the dynasty), I bred a claim on the Abassid Empire on myself and took them over when they had control of all of Arabia and East Africa, half of Persia, and most of Northern Africa. I started revoking and Faruk here, then Sultan of Iraq, was the only major vassal who didn't cause much trouble. So I saved him for last, meaning he saw every single revocation.

Five and a half hours later, I had him at about -15000 opinion.

My hand hurts.

A very patient man
Patient? Dull? Insane? Who can tell?

I had no idea that it would occupy me for the rest of the evening when I started it. If you had asked me beforehand, I probably would have guessed that it wouldn't take much longer than half an hour.

Sometimes, it's for the alliance, and it's a horrible, horrible match otherwise.
They're of the same dynasty! And even if she wanted an alliance with a cousin, she has four daughters!

Can you explain?
I just have no idea who thought that was a good match. As I said above, they're of the same dynasty (I didn't check how closely related, will have to take a look at that next time I play). He's five. By the time he's old enough to marry, she'll be well past child-bearing age. She's of a religion with Enatic Clans; he's Sunni. Her nickname is "the Unfaithful" and she's in a betrothal which won't become a marriage for over ten years. It's just... bizarre. The AI doesn't usually even do betrothals until age 12.

The only thing I can imagine is that her husband died, she went looking for a matrilineal match, and he was the highest available option in terms of prestige - probably because he's "related to a High Chieftess."

ETA: Also, she has 2 intrigue and she wants to become spymaster. Just full of bright ideas, isn't she?

How a man I already killed in a duel is going to either kill or maim me in another duel over 1 month later is a little weird don't you think? (This is an ironman achievement compatible game).
