Dead.png Game over occurs if:

  • You die with no heir of your dynasty
  • You die and your heir has an unplayable government. (If your heir merely has an unplayable religion, they will automatically convert to prevent game over.)
  • You change to an unplayable government or religion
  • You lose all titles without dying and the game is unable to transfer play to another ruler of your dynasty
  • You reach the start of the year 1453
