Hmh, that reminds me... The first game I played I had the problem of my rulers outliving all of their children and the majority of their grandchildren, especially the first six who lived between 59 and 94 years, all of them. Yes, 94; trying to get people to accept her greatgrandchild on the throne after that was problematic. Not all too surprising, I guess, considering she considering that during her lifetime she became the queen of Ireland, England and Wales with half of Scotland under her rule, from the starting point of two small duchies.Toffee said:Is there a good way to get yourself killed? My character is now past 60, but he just won't die. His mother lasted until she was nearly 80, if that affects anything. I'd be content to let him live out the rest of his days, but his heir has three daughters and has already put the oldest two in regular marriages. I want to start playing as him so I can at least get the youngest into a matrilineal marriage.
Yeah, looking back at it, I guess I could have conquered at least another third of Europe most of my rulers didn't have to spend twenty years culling the rebelling nobility before actually getting to do anything.
