In Knights of Honor 2, one kingdom can be a vassal of another. The sovereign will receive a percentage of his vassal’s gold income and fame. Although the vassal will be losing this amount of gold, he won’t lose any fame. Remember that you need fame to become the Emperor of the World and claim victory, so having vassals is very beneficial.
The amount of gold received from vassals can be increased with the appropriate traditions, such as “Iron Fist” and “Laws“.
You can check how many vassals you have by clicking on your kingdom on a global map. On the panel in the bottom middle of the screen, you will see the “Vassals” cell.
In addition, if a kingdom is your vassal, its background on the global map will be filled out with stripes.
How to make a kingdom your vassal
In order to make a kingdom a vassal, you must be at war with it. With military supremacy, you will be able to demand vassalization as one of the conditions for signing peace.
The enemy king can decline your vassalization demands if your negotiating position is weak, so you should show military power. At some point, the kingdom will finally become your vassal.
How to cancel vassalization and return independence to your vassals
There are only two ways to cancel vassalization.
- A sovereign and a vassal declare war on each other. If you declare war on your vassal, you will lose the crown authority, and the opinions of most social groups will drop.
- A sovereign grants independence to his vassal.
Both options are available via an audience with the vassal.
