- Fixes to Danish and Norwegian bastards

Yeah, that'll stop 'em proliferating their non-pedigree genes :-D

A vast amount of these fixes read as responses to emailed complaints by many, many history geeks :-)

I am in awe of the amount and complexity of data this game is working with, and the sheer scope of the thing! I can see why, as long as it works well, this is a game that he right kind of player would really appreciate.
