How does Hybrid Culture Work in Crusader Kings 3
If you have a culture in your territories different from your own in CK3, you can then create a hybrid culture between the two of them.
A hybrid culture in CK3 has the ability to choose what they like from both cultures and keep those things.
You can choose from all of these different categories:
- Martial Custom
- 6 Traditions
- Military Equipment
- Naming Practices
- Coats of Arms
You can only choose either to be similar to one of the two cultures in these categories or to have a combination of both.
For this hybrid culture, you will always be the Culture Head, which will allow you to choose what innovations you want to learn.
The two cultures that you combined will also be 100% accepted. This means that you won’t have any Popular Opinion debuffs in the provinces that have those cultures.
The last thing you will gain from this hybridization is the addition of innovations. You will get all the innovations the culture you are merging with has.

You will need at least 40 Cultural Acceptance with the culture. You can check the level of Cultural Acceptance by clicking on a county with the culture and hovering your mouse over the culture.
To increase Cultural Acceptance, you will have to open your Council menu to the right and set your Steward to Promote Cultural Acceptance.
Depending on the skill of your Steward, the acceptance will increase by around 0.5 to 1 per year.
It will also be much easier if you get some of the perks of the Scholar Learning Lifestyle. One of the first ones will increase Cultural Acceptance growth by 20%.
Learning the language of the culture you are trying to merge with will also help under some circumstances.
Once you meet the threshold to create a hybrid culture, you will just need to open the culture map from the bottom right corner of the screen and select the culture you want to merge with.
There will be a button in the bottom left corner that will say “Form Hybrid Culture.” Press that and start editing your new culture. It will cost 1000 Prestige to create a hybrid culture in CK3.
