I'm a Count, to a Duke, to the Emperor.
I've managed to get a claim on a Count who is directly vassal of the Emperor, and the game informed me I can't declare war on him because we are both vassals but our liege is different.
Now, I know I can declare a war of independence against my Duke, so that's beside the point.
- If I get a claim on my Duke's County, can I declare a claim war on him?
- If I get a claim against an independent, can I declare a claim war on him?
