    There are several ways to change your faction heir:

    - get your current heir loaded on a ship, then engage in naval battle with the enemy outnumbering you. Eventually your ship will run out of sailors and "crash". Your heir happens to be not able to swim and drowns (doh).

    - get your heir on a solo mission deep into enemy territory. Eventually he will be outnumbered and either die or get captured (hopefully he dies because I reckon if he gets captured you will have to pay ransom and you don't, you will suffer reputation loss).

    - use him as a heroic suicide reliever in siege battles (once my heir killed 400/500 enemy soldiers before dying by stakes deployed be me (he routed and went into the walls through the gate, were my stakes were. He was called "the Mad for a reason then, eh-he).

    - let "an act of God" take him away from mortal life (might take a long while as they're at random I reckon, unless some pre-set events like the Aleppo earthquake).

    I have always been disappointed that you can't change your faction heir in M2TW-- makes me miss Rome Total War.

    Ah, but it is historical! And even more historical as you get to kill your heir to get another in the spot....

    That may be true, I always wanted my heirs to be the most insane and unhinged of the family and I mostly seemed to have goody two shoes next in line for the throne.
