Creation Conditions[]

De jure territory of Jerusalem

A ruler requires 2 duchy titles, plus at least 51% (8) of the 15 de jure counties to create Jerusalem. In addition, a significant amount of gold and piety is required to create Jerusalem.

Only characters with a religion belonging to the religion group Christian (Catholic, Orthodox or Miaphysite) can create Jerusalem. 

Unique Mechanics[]

Kingdom of Heaven - The city of Jerusalem is holy to Christians. It is the most likely focus of crusades called by the Pope. Creating the Kingdom of Jerusalem (or obtaining the title via crusade) grants the new title holder an additional 5000 prestige and 2000 piety.
