This is a situation that I didn't quite feel was completely covered in a lot of what I've read. My current situation is that I'm the King of Brittany and can usurp France as soon as the poor bastard is as peace. My second son is betrothed to the Duchess of Champagne iirc.
He will inherit a county from me (even though inheritance is primogeniture) - I assume this is because a ducal title is gavelkind. I'm wanting to grant a duchy to this line so that I can pull the Duchy of Champagne into my realm.
My thoughts on the situation:
- How do I make sure it's the primary title, so that I get the duchy of champagne as well?
- Should I give it to his son instead of him (after the marriage happens), and then kill all his other sons?
My goal is Empire of Frankia obviously, this is a 769 start as the Count of Leon in Brittany and it's now the 1180s.
Advice please :-)
