Quick Overview

The command kill_consort in Europa Universalis IV is used to kill your current consort. This command, when executed, results in the death of the queen consort character of the player’s currently controlled nation.

In-Depth Description

The kill_consort command, as the name suggests, allows you to kill your current consort in Europa Universalis IV. This can be helpful in a variety of situations, depending on the gameplay strategies you're following.

A consort is a character who is the spouse of a ruling monarch. In game terms, a skilled consort can provide a variety of bonuses to your nation, such as increased legitimacy, administration and more. They can also serve as a regent if your ruler dies and the heir is not old enough to ascend the throne.

However, there may be situations where you might want to deliberately remove your consort. For example, you may want to remarry for the chance of getting a consort with better skills, or to forge a new alliance through marriage with another country.

In such cases, the kill_consort command provides a direct way to do so by instantly eliminating your current consort.

You should use this command when you feel your consort is not beneficent for your country or perhaps when you are looking to change your strategic alliances through a different marriage.

How to Open the Command Console

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

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

  • ~

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