Well, that explains a lot. We kill off number 2 and number 3 doesn't
reproduce ala the priesthood. So I guess we know why having a male heir
was so important now and also why there the colonies weren't immediately
overrun with Faux (and all those other domesday families as well). I
wonder what happened to poor number 4, repeat of 2 and 3 or what:))

Where did these "others"
go and what did they do for a living? Did they do to the cities and
become the butcher, baker and candlestick maker? Did they live on the
land and work it?
I recall hearing that the oldest son got the title and estate, the
went into the military as an officer, and the third went into the
don't know if that was an absolute rule.
