How to Spread Culture in Crusader Kings 3?
There is only one way to change the culture of counties in CK3 and spread your own culture there, and that is through your Steward.
Your Steward will have a task called “Promote Culture,” which will change the culture of a county after a lot of years.
Usually, even with a level 20 Steward, it will still take around 7 to 8 years to spread your culture in CK3. However, there are ways to speed up the process. Developed counties will also require more time to Promote Culture.
Every point in Stewardship for your Steward will increase the culture conversion by 0.05. You will need this culture conversion to reach 100 for the county to change its culture.
This means that a Steward with 5 Stewardship will have a base 0.25 culture conversion speed, while a level 20 Steward will increase the Promote Culture task by 1 every month.
In a maximum of 100 months, a level 20 Steward should be done spreading your culture in the assigned province.
Other Ways to Spread Culture in CK3
The player isn’t the only one who has access to the Promote Culture task. Your vassals can also use it in their territories and the provinces of their own vassals.
This means that if you make sure that the rulers of different lands are also part of your culture, they might also use the Promote Culture task through their Steward to help you out.
If you have conquered a lot of land in a war, it would be best to get rid of all the new vassals and appoint rulers that have your culture and religion.
This way, your vassals will also use their council to convert and spread the culture in their counties.
Unfortunately, there is no way to force your vassals to spread your culture. However, they are very likely to do it. So, just appoint vassals with the same culture and faith, and your culture will spread in no time.
That’s everything you need to know about how to spread culture in Crusader Kings 3!
