Marriage to Foreign Queen

Doshue88Doshue88 Registered Users Posts: 12
So I've continued testing, and still, not one time has my faction leader successfully made a child with a foreign queen. Is this going to be a function that hasn't been implimented yet? Has anyone successfully had children by a foreign queen? Is it only meant to be a diplomatic bonus? It sort of breaks the game for me because my family dies when my leader dies. I can have kids if I "seek wife" but I would love to marry a foreign queen. It's Massallia, that's kind of their whole M.O.

    They need to be together to do babies, so if your faction leader is leading an army try sending him back to being a politician an see how that goes, but the fact that you married the current queen of another faction makes me doubt if she is politically in your territory now or in her territory mmmm

    I've never seen a baby from a foreign queen. I'm not sure if this is a bug or intentional.
    IMO, CA could expand this option in future updates. For example, if your king has a child with a foreign queen, then their son may claim the leadership of both faction. When the queen dies, you will annex her faction. However, some foreign armies will refuse to join you and you will have to defeat them.

    I will do a few more tests where I try that. But my instincts tell me that the Ancestral Update is getting a full release today.

    That's what I was hoping to find out from a CA dev member, is it intentional or a bug?

    The last part of what you said is what I'm super hoping for. I wish there was some sort of Casus Belli mechanic in the game. That's what I loved about Medieval 2, you can't just stomp whoever you want into the dirt, you'll get excommunicated and everyone will come for you. That's what happened to the Macedonian Diodachi, he just started conquering without any real reason; so all these nations, including Rome, banded together and destroyed Macedon.

    It could be the same way with marriage. If both parents died, then your son would have claim to both nations, but there'd be this massive civil war over it, OR, you'd get a casus belli to invade. That would make for a much much slower game, but I think a much much more enjoyable/satisfying game.
