    Perhaps in theory they are realistic. Although even that is a push in my opinion. William had a powerful duchy and the backing of the Pope and, with a degree of luck, managed to successfully press...

    Hi, welcome to the forums.

    To be honest, that's one of the toughest ways to run your realm. Having loads of small counts as direct vassals just means you have loads of relationships to try and...

    Re: Post your Realm!

    I've never had a character like that outside the GoT mod. Whenever I've had one that even comes close they always die before they take the throne or just end up doing very little and die young.
