Is this a good idea?
I'm the Byzantine Emperor and all of my vassals LOVE me (they're all over 70). I try to give them as much power as possible in different sectors of the holy land because I'm hoping they'll do my conquering for me (which they usually do). Is this a good idea?

Depends how powerful you are personally. If you're able to handle a few of them rebelling in a couple generations I would think you'll be fine.
And just keeping them happy through generations often means there won't be a lot of trouble anyways, so if your heirs are good (kind and just traits for example) it's unlikely anything will happen.

If you have a lot of them, and you keep them from all allying with each other, you can probably use the levies from the ones that don't rebel to crush any who do. A larger (and powerful) personal demense also helps. That can prevent them from rebelling in the first place, really.

i have 11000 retinues right now, and my demesne levy is like 6000. It just so happens that my heir is both kind and just.

i d say good idea, faithfull vassals can really conquer lots of territory if your kingdom is in order(make sure they don t have claims on some other vassals of yours and your empire will surely grow)

it s a good idea if you know what you re doing and what to expect in the future decades
but if your heir is a young lovable character, you should be fine

Good. everything is in order. I had a bit of a scare today when there was a jihad for Jerusalem and several Sunni rebellions at the same time. My recently conquered vassals started an independence faction and got it pretty powerful. I crushed the jihad, put down the rebellions, and am scheming in some counties. I hope this all works out.
