im now in full control of the north of the iberian penisuela. i control the kingdoms of castille,leon and galicia, fought a great war over portugale when they tried to declare their independence, and now im rebuilding my millitary strenght and trying to get full personal control of the duchies of castilla and leon to secure my own, personal army(thats currently at 3600 men max but still replendishing) and get control of the kingdom of navarra, the thorn in my back. the muslims are picking of smaller states but dont yet dare to fight me as they suffered heavy losses trying to take portugale when they declared independence. so i need to get my annoyingly strong sister weaker as i gave her a duchy and a new count to get her back to not rebelling. im lucky enough her heir so im now trying to get her killed as that leaves me with just 2 counties in the 2 duchies i want not under my control.
EDIT: and now im THE major power on the iderian penisuela and one of the major catholic powers surpassed in millitary strenght only by the byzantine and holy roman empire. now i just need a valid casus belli on whole of navarra and barcelona and ill own the complete north, and allows me to fully concentrate on the muslim threath and forging ties with france.
