Quick Overview

The age_consort command in Europa Universalis IV is used to set the age of the consort (the spouse of a reigning monarch) in the game.

When this command is used followed by a number, it changes the consort's age to that specified number.

In-Depth Description

The age_consort command in Europa Universalis IV allows you to manipulate the age of your consort.

This means you change the age of the queens in a monarchy or other types of female leaders or partners to monarchs in different types of government.

This command can be helpful in a few different ways. Firstly, this command lets you change the age of your consort, allowing you more control over their lifespan. It can help in ensuring you have the presence of a consort when you need it.

For example, in certain scenarios, you may want to use the command to artificially age your consort to bypass the child regency period, that is when a monarch inherits the throne too young (below 15 in this game) and a regency council or consort reigns instead.

Alternatively, you might want to decrease their age to extend their life, making sure they're around for strategic decisions such as alliances and royal marriages based on the game mechanisms using diplomacy where consorts can have quite a bit of influence.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
