Absolute Authority and Wars inside the Realm?
I thought that once you got your CA up to Absolute (max) that none of your vassals could declair war on anyone else in your own realm? Look at this picture below. It's still happening.

This is an Ironman game and I can't go back. I've been trying to get my succesion laws changed and haven't been able to do so due to either wars declaired on me, or wars ammong vassals. So, I moved to the dredded Absolute Crown Authority to solve the second half of that problem. But they are still declaring wars on eachother. My ream is too big to not have someone fighting inside it, and once my current ruler dies, the kingdoms will be devided. Am I missing something here?

its because the duke tried to revoke the title from the count and he refused, that automatically starts a war and crown authority wont affect those

Ah, you are correct. I didn't even read the whole message. LOL... thanks for the sanity check.

I actually wondered this as well a long time ago...nice to know why I was having the same issue.

With medium crown authority i still see direct vassals declaring war on other direct vassals when they shouldnt be able to, like for kingdoms they have a claim on or duchies etc. Always found it strange but I figured the AI was cheating or something.

Other than the fact that this is technically a rebellion which can happen under any authority, crown laws only apply in the de jure realm they're set.

The other situation where people confuse that is only DE JURE titles of that Absolute Authority must adhere to it.
So if you are the Emperor of Britain and have absolute, your lands in France will adhere to the local French laws.

Now where it gets nuts, is I believe if a duke from one kingdom has holdings in the other, he is bound by his/her primary title. Not positive.

Ah, I hadnt thought of that. I suppose that would be a good reason to actually have the emperor or kingdom titles of other de jur lands. Thanks

Cool.. thanks for all the help guys.

Side note: I"m aware that all laws do not traverse into other de jure kingdoms, which is why I am not taking the kingdom of Italy or Croatia in my game. I'm letting those duchies that I have (complete duchies, meaning owning all lands belonging to that duchy and the duchy title it's self) become de jure to Bavaria, so my laws will apply, just it takes 100 years for those duchies to move de jure to Bavaria from whatever they were. I could currently creat 4 other kingdomes. But I'm like at 80 years or so to them becoming de jure to Bavaria, which I think is better, long term.

That depends on what you are trying to do.

Adding counties and duchies to kingdoms can negatively impact systems like Elective Monarchy. As soon as they are de jure, they get a vote.
