This "Age 20" etc. stuff is confusing me- is it the minimum age a character has to be before they can get these nicknames, or is it that they have to already have the required traits by that age in order to get the nickname later? Can someone please edit the article to make this more clear?

It's the minimum age, I've fixed the descriptions. It comes from the scripts where age = 20 is used for age >= 20 and NOT = { age = 20 } is used for age < 20, needs some getting used to ^^ -Romulien (talk) 20:19, 26 April 2014 (CEST)
'Age more than 20' means 'Age > 20' — I think 'Age of at least 20' is a better wording for 'Age ≥ 20', isn't it? - 91.2.9.60 12:55, 27 April 2014 (CEST)
It is, done ! -Romulien (talk) 14:15, 27 April 2014 (CEST)

Thank you very much, I understand it now! :)

--- The Usurper nickname is obtainable on 2.3 patch. I was named so after "fabricate claim on dutchy" plot and usurping it from my liege through faction revoult. My liege was heretic and foreigner.

--- The Victorious nickname is also obtainable now. I got it after a sucessful christian invasion.

"The Hammer"[edit]

It says that the nickname "The Hammer" is not available to be recieved in-game, but my character received it after repelling a Jihad. I would edit it, but I thought I should get some input first. (Also, I'm really inexperienced in the ways of Wikidom, so I'm nervous I would mess something up if I tried to edit). Has this happened to anyone else?

I had the same happen. According to the file 00_cb_types.txt, it is one of several that are given out to Crusade/Jihad winners. Christes (talk) 01:41, 11 February 2015 (CET)

Names from wars[edit]

I just added a bunch of nicknames earned by winning wars. They are all from the file 00_cb_types.txt, so feel free to check it. The phrasing I used wasn't 100% consistent with the existing phrasing in the list, since I wanted to make it clear whether the attacker or defender got the nickname.

The Dragon[edit]

I got it with a ruler of 34 years (ruled for about half that) and had neither any of the traits listed nor won a tribal invasion. But I did have the cannibal trait and a martial education (brilliant strategist). It must have been the cannibal trait. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.104.56.66 (talk) 14:12, 30 November 2016‎ (CET)


'the Nun'[edit]

My female ruler (Bohemian, Queen of Pannonia) just got nickednamed 'the Nun'. I'm confused because her piety isn't that high (636), she's married and has children. It's not listed on the Wiki page... does anyone know how it's triggered? The only slightly odd thing here is that both of her sons (being of another dynasty) got given bishoprics so my inheritance didn't end. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.222.91.254 (talk) 21:11, 10 February 2017 (CET)

Based on 00_nicknames.txt: age 20, minimum piety 500, females only, Christians only, and one of Chaste , Celibate , or Nun . Chance increases with piety at 1k, 2k, and 4k. I'll add it in. --StarSword (talk) 06:40, 13 February 2017 (CET)

"the Repulsive"[edit]

One of my vassals got nicknamed "the Repulsive", but I can't find it on the list. He's lustful, ugly, and scarred, so maybe it's because of one of these traits, or a combination of them? --5.145.98.244 12:41, 12 September 2018 (CEST)

"the Traitor"[edit]

Had this one appear on a commander who fled mid-battle. Never experienced such event before, got pop-up during the battle, that this commander has fled. He was stripped of his minor title and got the nickname.
