De jure kingdoms in 1066

Kingdom.png Kingdoms are the title level below empires and above duchies, and the most common rank for independent realms. The titles are generally held by King Feudal.png King rank characters.

To create or usurp a kingdom title, you must:

  • control at least 51% of the title's de jure lands.
  • already control a kingdom or empire or else hold two or more duchy titles. Note that these duchy titles do not have to be located within the kingdom you wish to found or usurp.
  • meet specific religious and/or cultural conditions (since Patch 2.0 most conditions only apply to the AI).

Kingdoms without any de jure lands are titular. Some can be formed by owning a designated capital county and meeting certain other requirements, listed below.

The de jure duchies within a kingdom can change over time through assimilation, and many kingdoms do not de facto control all of their de jure lands at most start dates. For example, in 1066, the duchy of Toulouse is part of the de jure kingdom of Aquitaine, but is entirely controlled by the King of France.

A king will have a Casus Belli for each county in his de jure kingdom he does not control. Additionally, independent counts within his de jure kingdom are more likely to accept diplomatic vassalization if offered.

Custom kingdoms[edit]

With the Charlemagne DLC, rulers can create a custom de jure kingdom. This decision is available to independent dukes with 1000 prestige as well as either 35 holdings in their realms, or else 3 duchy titles. Custom kingdoms are named after their creator's primary duchy (although they can be renamed with the customizer DLC) and belong to the same de jure empire that the ruler's previous de jure kingdom was part of.

De Jure kingdoms[edit]

Any kingdom on this list with its requirements listed as N/A is not possible to create or usurp, and will therefore only exist in campaigns where the kingdom exists on the game start.
