In my previous post about royalty and the rules for succession. Many had argue that the rules I put in place is destabilizing and that the Kingdom I created would not last, but what you all probably didn't know about is that history had already shown that conflicts arises from the Rules of Succession can last as the Ottoman Empire use to practice fratricide(killing of one's brothers) at the heights of power and it was only when they stop did they begin to decline. Watch this video on it. So no my Kingdom would be fine even with the Monster threat to there neighbor, in fact a King forge in fire is usually better then one made from peace in the situation of my kingdom, and so don't argue with me about the survivability of my Kingdom. As the Roman Empire was not forge in peace and had more then ten times the Civil War most nation can sustain yet last as one the longest of all empires. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_civil_wars_and_revolts Now what you can argue with me is which form of marital practice is better for a Royal family such as mine? Polygamy or Monogamy? As the Royal family of the Kingdom in my world has a law that made it so that all Nobles must send there daughters to be Wed to the new King after he had ascended, if they don't have a daughter then they must send there successor son to stay in the Capital as the Kings man or basically a man of the King entourage. But if they have neither son nor daughters then that noble is either a non-hereditary noble or will be made into one if they don't adopt someone into their family to perform the task. This is to prevent Nobles from forming alliances by wedding there daughter and sons together as well as building a relationship with each of the next chosen successor of the nobility. As well as keep the royal family from inbreeding as there are only three states like I said on the Dark Continent that my Kingdom is located and the others great power in my world live an ocean away. Now naturally not all of my Kings are polygamist as they can just not follow the law because they are the king and the king is the chief enforcer of the law, so they can just choose not to follow the law with no reprocussion. But many of them are and the rules of successions kept the Kingdom from having many backstage political battle from occurring and then bleeding out on the open stage by formalizing there potential conflicts into different social events to be view as a spectacle for the public that only lead to the contestant in the event becoming the king of there country. While a monogamous king did have stable transition of power... They usually produce a weaker kings that led to the throne of Damocles having to turn them into a puppet to become a marionette king. So is it better to have a marriage that lead to lead to one apparent heir or one that lead to multiple heir candidates following the rules of succession?
