I thought I'd take a look at the rest of the world and see how the rest of the world is consolidating. Duchess Aurora has the larget realm in Greece and Asia Minor with three counties so far, a good start. The count of Byzantion has assumed the title of Emperor because holding the city is enough in Ck2+ but he has, so far, no other counties to his name., Looking south we have a bit of a surprise. What do you get when a Greek count marries a Nubian countess? A Duchess of Crete who is halfway to becoming Queen of Nubia. On the other side of the Red Sea the descendants of Mohammed have established the Hashimid Emirate around Medina and they will probably be the second major power in the region. In south Italy Count Weeabohemond rules four counties but has not yet established a duchy so if he dies prematurely his heirs will just divide it all again. In North Africa we have the Waheedid Emirate in Cyrenaica. At the western end of the world the Almoravids have a large emirate around Marrakech and the oldest son and heir is already Emir of Fes. The only question is whether they will expand north or south. In the British Isles we have two duchies and they're both allied. The Duchess of Connacht is married to the Duke of Northumberland. No heirs yet, but if they come they'll have the start of a kingdom.
