I've finally established a strong and cohesive plot, but I have one issue I have to deal with. Let me lay out the situation: It's 1700 and Carlos II of Spain has just died, bringing into question the succession to the Spanish throne. In his will, Carlos left Spain and her territories to Prince Léonard of Réona. Réona is a nation with a strong religious tradition called Verumism. As such, Prince Léonard is a Verumist, not a Catholic, let alone a Christian. With Spain's history of religious intolerance, it seems unlikely that the people or the nobility would accept a king that is anything besides Catholic. But it has to happen, otherwise the entire plot falls apart. So there's the question. How could a perceived heathen receive the throne of a fervently Catholic nation?
