|It was only a matter of time before Briefne rebelled|
As luck would have it, though, it was a very short war. I marched my troops back into Briefne, and they got down to the business of smacking around enemy soldiers. Moments later I was informed that Arzhel was dead, and that the war was over, so things worked out rather well there. I didn't even need to call in foreign help, which was quite nice.
|The war with Briefne didn't last very|
While idly scanning the map, I also noticed that Scotland has been expanding quite a bit, and has even gained a foothold in Ireland. They seem to be staying put in Ulster right now, and neighboring regions are on guard. It'll be a little while until the Scots are a threat to Connacht, but I'm keeping an eye on them for now. If they try to enter my territory I have a number of alliances at my disposal including Castille, Sweden, Norway, and France. Hopefully the threat of being stomped by some of Europe's greatest powers with give Scotland pause before trying to invade my fair dukedom.

Also, it seems like Enri's heir, Emich, also turned into a complete moron the moment I changed the succession laws. Suddenly he was running around plotting murders left and right. My spymaster discovered these schemes twice before getting bumped off himself by the idiot. It's like he figured he's guaranteed to be duke now, so he can do whatever he wants. After that I'd finally had enough and figured I'd toss the lad in prison for a few years while he takes some time to think about what he's done. Instead he managed to avoid arrest, and buggered off to the Continent. Now he's off fighting in the Crusades.
