Custom designed Republic.
I wanted to try playing as a republic but I cant design a ruler republic and choose its starting location at the same time.
So I thought up a scheme, I want to know if this is possible before commiting the time to do it.

1. Become at least a Duke.
2. Grant my heir a city, then the county.
3. Wait till I die.
4. Inherit the Duchy and become republic.

Will this work? And what difference will this make if I hold a proper kindom with 3 sons under gavelkind...

Actually, if I do the same to each son with each going to inherit a duchy while the heir gets the kingdom, wouldn't I become Serene Doge and become an instant power since all the sons are of the same dynasty?

*Edit: I think I made it possible, at least I've found a method to make it happen.

It would be far easier if you select to play the king / duke of the area you want to start and cheat to give you the claim to a duchy / county. Then make a republic vassal, save and cheat to kill yourself with cheat.

Load up and use customer rulrer on new republic.


Of course it is even easier if you just editi the base files :)

I've done some testing with Command Console and the results are 'funny' so to speak.
1. Inheriting a duchy as Lord Mayor will not change it to a republic mechanic-wise. I inherited the Grand City but remained Prince of England.
2. 'Gavelkind title granting exploit prevention' that came with the latest patch prevented me from trying that on my heir (first born son)
3. Second Son granted Duchy of Hwice, Third Son granted Duchy of Kent while both being Lord Mayor. Both became Grand Mayor of respective Republics. First Son remains Prince.
4. I killed myself.
5. Both Republics are under same leige (First Son), I can only load save file for second son, will loose instantly if I cheat to play as third son. Probably because both are of the same House and you cannot have two Same Dynasty Republics. (I created the Second Sons Republic before the Thirds)
6. The second son is still claiment to Kingdom of England and remains an Heir to it as Frist son does not have children.
7. The UI and Dynasty House are there, True and thorough Republic gameplay.
8. Following this logic I assume if I make an only child a Grand Mayor before kicking the bucket or use either Primo- or Ultimogeniture on a Republican heir I'd be playing as Serene Doge. That would be massive OP as Brittania is almost entirely coastal.

The easiest way is to start as a king/emperor and create a republic. Then save and reload the game and select to play as the republic. This definitely works but may be more difficult and time consuming.

easiest to just cheat and give a mayor his country then the duchy then switch to him
