For the full family tree, click here. Be sure to check out the “biographical” tab for age, aspirations, reward traits, etc. Be warned: may contain spoilers — the tree is updated according to my game-play, not according to this blog.
Equality: The Founder may be of either gender. Both boys and girls are eligible for the title of heir.
Strict Traditional : To be eligible to be named heir, a child must be naturally born from their previous-generation parents and be able to trace an unbroken bloodline back to the founder. Adopted children may never be named heir.
Strict Legitimacy: Only “legitimate” children may be named heir. The child may be conceived out of wedlock, but must be born to married parents. (i/a the child must be born before the parents get a divorce to remain legitimate)
First Born: The oldest, by order of joining the family, eligible living child is named heir. (I also really like Strength and Democracy laws…this may change at some point.)
