Award honorary title.png Honorary titles are minor titles that may be given to vassals or courtiers to help manage your realm.

Those titles are usually cosmetic as they bear no responsibilities. They usually give:

  • a positive opinion modifier from the character you give the title to, making it a good way to please vassals (except for Court Jester).
  • a monthly salary and/or prestige bonus, scaled by liege tier. The prestige gain is useful for your heir and may even alter succession, if the succession type is dependent on prestige.

However, some titles can be quite important and should be given out carefully. A designated regent will become very important if a ruler becomes disabled or is a child. The skill and opinion of a Court Physician can be vital if a character becomes sick. Even less important honorary titles, such as Cupbearer, can be dangerous if held by disloyal characters as some minor titles have special events tied to them.

Some titles are flagged as unique, meaning a character can't hold another unique title at the same time.

These honorary titles are automatically granted to special characters who arrive due to spending grace or as refugees from China.

It is also possible to grant these honorary titles to characters who have the corresponding character modifiers. However, if the character is a vassal ruler, they usually have to be "serving in your court" as a councilor before you can bestow the honorary title.
