ARKUTH - Succession of Noble Houses

Succession of Noble Houses

 

Creative Notes
Here you can see a visual aid for those trying to understand the primogenitures in Arkuth. By reading and trying to understand the Noble Primogenitures page on this website, you will have a better grasp on the order of succession based on provided information by kingdom or region.
As you can see in this first example (male preference - primogeniture) that some alternatives are missing from the diagram. However, using a little common sense one can assume that an "uncle" that inherits the throne, will use the exact same succession rules as the former king. IE: The uncle may only have daughters and thus they would inherit titles etc just the same as the former king's daughters would have if no males were in line to succeed before them.
