The Queen died of natural causes right after I made that post, naturally. Now I learn the heir broke a treaty at some point against another Catholic and all Catholics think -30 reputation less of him. I sure hope that isn't permanent or it might be civil war for Poland at some point. Luckily I was able to give away some outlying lands to my brother and cousin dukes that put me over my limit anyways so there are only three minor vassals who are in the negative at the moment of unpausing. It looked a lot worse before I did that though, I almost reloaded before I tried that.
One weird thing that happened is the new King's third son (first is heir, second I gave the Bishopric of Sacz I held for years that I was saving to remove someone from succession, third is who I'm speaking of) is set to inherit the Dukedom of Greater Poland (a very important part of Poland) despite already controlling a Barony in a Bishopric county controlled by the Papal state (Benevento). This is a problem because his liege is currently the Pope. If it's like previous situations he will take Greater Poland's duchy with him upon the death of my character. Despite this it doesn't show the Vassal inheritance leaves your realm warning for him so I don't know if he will come back to Poland after the death of my character or take Greater Poland for the Pope. I guess it won't be a problem for a long time but I have a feeling I'll have to kill the poor guy because of it eventually all because a relative of his died childless and it passed to him because his mother was somehow in the chain of succession.
EDIT: ooh, I know, I'll pass the Duchy to my first son once the current King is at a ripe old age. That way the heir will receive both Greater and Lesser Poland's dukedoms like his predecessors. If I wait until then my heir won't be hated by his peers in the interim for having too many duchies, too.
EDIT2: Actually it looks like it will be Title loss on Succession instead of Pass from Realm on Succession. This doesn't seem as bad. Also I tried revoking a local Bishopric but since the third son is a vassal of the Pope I can't grant him lands and make him a Prince-Bishop to remove him from succession like I did the second son. He's also taking about half my titled counties with him upon succession. Does this only mean they won't pass to the successor I continue as or does it mean I should get to stabbing his neck for the hefty cost of 200 gold before the Pope owns half of Poland?
EDIT3: Ahahaha, he's going to have to die now and I'll explain why. My daughter is the third son's heir for Benevento. I also have a young, shy, umarried Piast son of the brother of my character's grandfather (mother's cousin) holding a moderately strong dukedom while he is also my brother in law because my character decided to marry his mother's cousin from a different child of my character's grandfather; while my current character was controlled by the AI and I was still playing as the previous Queen. The Piast brother-in-law is the same age as my daughter so I offered my daughter to the brother-in-law for marriage and he accepted. That means once I have my son stabbed in the neck the daughter will have Benevento which will pass to the first male offspring along with whatever the brother-in-law holds. My hope is this turns the tables on the Pope and I get some of his land for once. Either that or I'll have more family stabbed to death in their sleep in a chain of fraticide over a minor barony's allegiance that won't end until someone who doesn't inherit anything important is set to inherit Benevento castle.
([at least he was maimed] go for the neck this time you damn assassins! <reload>)
EDIT4: Well, he's dead now. I actually didn't have to reload for that one as my spymaster reduced the chance of discovery to 0% and the chance of success to 47% so I got him on the first try for once. Interestingly Benevento passed to my granddaughter who was unlanded and not an heir to anything instead of to my daughter as I had planned. Now my daughter is married to her second uncle for nothing, hehe. Ah well, at least that's the end of that dark stain on my character's imaginary video game soul. It didn't turn out as bad as I feared.
EDIT5: So that same king, King Heiry II of Poland, received the title of 'the Gentle.' Why? I think because I conquered an independent count and made him my vassal. He was understandably upset at me for this and thought about -80 out of a possible -100 to 100 of me. Instead of killing or removing him from power I instead gave him a relatively cheap gift of 35ish gold for +50ish, made him my spymaster as he was the best at intrigue anyways of all my vassals and desired the position as his ambition in addition. That put him at positive and I made him the duke of the area his county was in for another +60. Then he retired from the spymaster position to take up gardening in his old age and I called him back to service which put him at +80 due to another received spymaster position bonus. Pretty cool stuff, I like this game more and more as I play it.
