Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords – Norse/Viking Dynasty Legacies

Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords adds two Dynasty Legacies for the Vikings. These are on top of the original seven from the vanilla version of the game.


Furthermore, as long as you unlock the first tier of a Dynastic Legacy, the entire selection will remain available even if the Dynasty Head changes its culture. It’s akin to how the Norse peoples have changed over time due to cultural assimilation and local influence.
