Executing enemy lord?
I've been trying to find an answer to this for some time now without success.

I'm playing as a king in ireland and have successfully invaded another county that I had a claim on. The existing lord has offered surrender but with him remaining in control of the county (and I'm guessing, retaining the title?).

I want direct control over the county and the title - can I not just execute the man if I've laid siege to every holding in the county?

You can always revoke his title and have the county as yours.

I'm guessing it's a de jure claim? Then yeah, you're fighting to make him your vassal. If he owned land elsewhere you would take control of it personally.

You can just revoke the title once you make him your vassal, which incur tyranny and ♥♥♥♥ off everyone in your realm. There are a few ways to avoid that though.
If it's in your capital duchy or something like that you should be able to plot to revoke it, or you could fabricate a claim before revoking the title.

If you can get him to rebel he'll be labeled a traitor, which allows you to revoke one title for free after you defeat him.

Yeah it was a de jure claim. I did end up making a plot and going back to war and getting the title that way.

Thanks for clearing things up.
