Improvements[edit]

This page needs considerable improvements:

  • It needs an intro
  • It needs info on royal marriages
  • It needs to be rewritten to follow the style guidelines

Life Expectancy?[edit]

Is there knowledge of how long rules live (or what chance they have of dying at any particular age, etc.)? Seems potentially important/useful for considering whether or not to Claim thrones. --John (talk) 07:54, 5 January 2014 (CET)

I second this. For now, I'm hoping it's similar enough to the life expectancy of advisors that I can make reasonable decisions... although, if the life expectancy is known for advisors, shouldn'tit be known for rulers? 107.77.70.85 19:37, 24 August 2015 (CEST)

Grandchildren[edit]

Is it a feature or a bug that after my 76 years old king dies, the 61 years old heir raises to throne and only then he has first, age 0 heir- what did he do for the last 50 years? :)

Cromwell[edit]

Shouldn't his last name be shown as well?

Royal marriage[edit]

somewhere needs to be a table or something about royal marriage limitations - which government/religion you can/can't marry.02:18, 11 March 2015 (CET)

Declaring war while in a regency[edit]

I'm not sure what's going on, but I've been able to declare war while in a regency on several occasions (such as just now in an Aztec game). Is this information simply wrong, or is there some other factor at play here? Perhaps only Christian regencies can't declare war? -- Romløk (talk) 20:57, 10 May 2015 (CEST)

Nahuatl get an exception to the regency rule. I'll edit in a note. ~ Meneth (talk) 20:58, 10 May 2015 (CEST)

Get rid of a ruling consort (Right of Man)[edit]

Sometimes, after a regency, your consort just stay in power (even if your heir is old enough) and rules until death, just like that (in my game there were not even a pop up to tell me). However, since you cannot resign before 20 years (except if your consort is already quite old), nor you can send her to battlefield in hope she will die (I am a terrible person), is there a way to get rid of her? I'm not fond of trying to aggressively conquer (most part of) the world with a 20 years-ruling 2-1-1 regent… Britoncolony (talk) 04:45, 7 October 2017 (CEST)

About rulers' culture and religion[edit]

I think it's necessary.--Pokewiz (talk) 15:57, 29 April 2018 (CEST)

Naming of heir[edit]

This page could use some information about when it is possible to name an heir. I tested which DLC is needed for it and found out that both El Dorado and Cossacks gives you the ability. Grotaclas (talk) 00:17, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

I've added a short hint. – Lillebror (talk) 07:45, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

heir chance formula[edit]

I don't think that the formula for heir chance is correct. When I played the Mughals in 1.27, I noticed that I got heirs very very fast after assimilating the congo culture group. I recreated the situation with the console in 1.29 (I think it was done on 1.29.3, because I posted about it on Jan 6th) and again in 1.30.3 and got +203% heir chance from the following modifiers:

  • +100% with Sunni as state religion
  • +33% for trading in dyes
  • +50% from assimilating the Congo culture group
  • +20% from 4 royal marriage

With that I got an heir after 1 day, 10 times in a row in 1.29. In 1.30.3 I did it 20 times and still got an heir after one day each time. But with only +198% heir chance, it took much longer to get an heir(I didn't measure this exactly, but in 1.29 it seemed to be several months and in my test in 1.30.3 I waited for an heir 4 times and it took more than a year each time. This was with mostly with +198% heir chance, but it dropped to +193% once because a royal marriage broke). So either there is a special case for more than 200% heir chance or the formula is different than the article claims and it results in an extremely high chance above +200%. --Grotaclas (talk) 17:47, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
