what i found for the moment:

-Dinis's successor, Afonso IV (1325–1357), instituted a system of six official comarcas



that reflected a concrete definition of these regions:

Antre Douro e Minho, Antre Douro e Mondego, Beira,Estremadura, Antre Tejo e Odiana and Algarve(Could be duchies?,adding porto,bragança and lisboa?)


-Diocesis SXIV-SXV
Braga Porto Lamego,Viseu,Guarda,Coimbra,Evora,Lisboa e Silves

-Almoxarifes(similar to merindades)S XV:

     Entre-Douro-e-Minho:
                    Ponte de Lima; Guimarães; Porto 
     Trás-os-Montes 
                    Vila Real; Torre de Moncorvo Beira Lamego; Viseu; Guarda 
     Estremadura
                    Aveiro; Coimbra; Leiria; Santarém;Abrantes; Óbidos; Alenquer; Sintra 
     Alentejo: 
                    Setúbal; Portalegre; Estremoz; Évora; Beja

I think The Prince and the Thane avoids excessive localisation except when absolutely necessary because there's no good translation of the term. 

I guess the Hungarian Nádor of Hungary counts as one; although it was called Palatinus in Latin, this translation doesn't really fit the concept of Nádor, a mix between a maior domus, a chamberlain and a prime minister. More the latter than anything else...

An exception would be the always fictional "spymaster", whose function was usually the Chancellor's or the Favourite's responsibility and that it usually fell down to his second in command or right hand. That's why I used "Protonotarius" in the Catalan row, because it's one of the Chancellor's right hands, and also a likely candidate to be some kind of spymaster. Although I also used the office of "Mestre Torsimany", torsimany being a translator specialised in the figurative translation of juridical texts, which made the School of Translators a spionage powerhouse if its leader was on someone's pocket.

But that's for another thread.

For now I'll try to base the map of Portugal on the several counties and family holdings, and on bishoprics when this proves insufficient.

Ok, here's what I got:



Notes:

I could not fit all counties, of course, but I tried to get inside those that were either more important or earlier in time. For Central and Southern portugal I followed the bishoprics and this map of military order domains:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b7/Orders_of_knighthood_Iberia.svg/1000px-Orders_of_knighthood_Iberia.svg.png

Red is Santiago, purple is Calatrava, green is Alcántara, pink is Templars and light pink is Portuguese Santiago. Yellow is Montesa + Sant Jordi.

Some new counties, I'm not sure if they deserve to be there. Barcelos could be easily merged into Braga and make the counts of Barcelos the counts of Braga. I'm also unsure about Tentúgal.

Sorry about the quality, I'm having problems with imageshack.

On second thought, Portugal may have too many provinces this way. Tentúgal and Barcelos out, Marialva, Serta and Vimioso probably too. They are kind of arbitrary. Marialva and Vimioso are counties, earlier than what's usual (most were created around 1450), and they are there to give the Counts of Portucale a bit of extra power.

I'm happy about the rest, but may other voices be heard!

Sounds good to me. What is most important IMO is the balance of power between the titles so that the historical situation can evoluate plausibly since the historical accuracy may render certain characters/titles unplayable.

I know, but that's what I'm not that good at.

Right now the Count of Portucale seems more powerful than the king of Galicia, which is not a bad thing. But the "to be" king of Portugal, even without Lisboa and the central areas of the country, will be as powerful, or more, than the King of León, and that doesn't seem right. The king of León was always the most powerful.

I guess we can play with this map and add or take holdings out. León was a big city, that on top of that got an autonomous government of citizens. A charter, so to speak. León could have more holdings than the usual. The King of Aragon is more powerful, so he can take on the Hudids all by itself, but he'll do just fine if he allies with Barcelona, that now would be the other powerhouse of the Peninsula. Maybe too much, but if we follow the "new rules" regarding titles, Barcelona will be a titular title, and the Catalan counts will rebel like the plague. Although this could have dire un-historical consequences.

In any case, Castile and León own most of the lands they hold, whereas Barcelona doesn't, he owns three counties, and the others are all in the hands of old dynasties.

I guess the key is playing with the holdings.

Fernando I left Garcia Galicia and the Parias of Badajoz and Sevilla
He left Alfonso Leon and the paria of Toledo
And last he left Sancho and the paria of Zaragoza.

The map done by paradox does not reflect the political situation.i think is a good idea to enhance Leon and especially Castile


Sancho Defeated his cousins ​​Sancho Sancho IV of Navarre and Sancho of Aragon in the War of the Three sanchos.later he teamed up with alfonso to conquer Galicia but Sancho then turned on Alfonso and defeated him(From Sancho wiki).

About Leon a vague tradition had always assigned the title of emperor to the sovereign who held León.but Leon was Leon Galicia and Asturias,then Galicia was divided in two,(Portugal de-facto independent)and  the Christian kingdoms expanded to the south,and the power shifts toward Castile.


About the Map i really like what i see,maybe one more province in the algarve if you thougth to make it a titular kingdom(if it can only be created by the king of portugal)Maybe Tavira or Loule.The most populated area is the north(according to the
pdf i linked in one of my previous post the minho area were the more populated in the SXIV)



Leira:
 It was the setting of several cortes (feudal parliaments) 1254,1372,1376,1438.D. Dinis and  Joao had royal palaces in leira

Ourem:
during the Reconquista served as watchpost for the Castle of Leiria,The county was created in 1370 and was linked to the house of Baraganza,Afonso de Bragança (first Duke of Braganza 1402-1460) had a period of great development.
I see the two options valid,depends on what you want to do,realistic county titles or centers of power,

I think is similar with Marialva and Lamergo.(the legendary Cortes of Lamego, where it was made ​​the acclamation of D. Afonso Henriques as King of Portugal and established the "Rules of Succession to the Throne." , was a diocesis too and was one of the more important cities).

Vimioso::
Vila Real would be a better option if he had not founded in 1289,Vila Real was once known as the "Court of Tras-os-Montes," due to the high number of family Coats of Arm in their houses, It housed more members of the royal family during the Middle Ages than any other settlement in Portugal except Lisbon,and is the home of the house of Vila-Real.(can be changed the name of a province with an event?)

I tried to add in Loulé, but it was too stretchy. If the Algarve needs more provinces then I might merge the counties of Alvor, Portimao and Loulé into one, Loulé. They are all side by side.

Leiria it is, then. Ourem can be a barony, in any case.

I wanted to add Vila Real because it was an important title, but of course, the city was founded too late into the game... so I had to look for an alternative; to leave Viseu as it is and look for another county elegible for northern Portugal, in this case Vimioso.

While waiting for further discussion on Spain, I moved into France because I get bored easily.

The following question pops up into my mind: how passable is the Massif Central? Should there be some kind of impassable frontier in the Rhône valley? Some ridge there that is way too difficult to pass through?

The Lozère department (the old Gévaudan, known for its beast) is very impracticable even today (still the least populated department in France - the whole population could be contained in the Stade de France) so the Cévennes ridge could be an impassable ridge.

Probably out of CK2 timeline, but it could be necessary to put the cévennes as impassable since this region was a very important stronghold position for the huguenots (french protestants) but also of the cathars. So this impassable ridge would split the languedoc from the northern part of occitania which is interesting since these 2 regions are very different.

Edit : The impassable ridge could also go as north as the Vivarais.

It's completely passable and quite populated. As for the valley here, the mountains that border it are extinct volcans that don't raise higher than 500 meters high. They were perfect for castle building though : I don't think there's many places that makes its network of castle so visually striking by standing out in the landscape (you have to get on top of one to see them though).

The massif central is a really large moutain range, covering a vast area (probably a good quarter of the kingdom in 1066). Only the central part (Lozère, Velay, Ardèche etc) is elevated enough to be considered problematic for troop movement but there's still a high number of passes and we're not speaking of high altitude either : because it's far older than the Pyrénées and the Alps, it's more like a plateau and its highest peaks don't even reach 2000 meters.

Today it's just not the place to be car sick.

I live next to Ardèche (modern Vivarais) I can assure you there's nothing impassable here, even with a car.

You can't compare modern and medieval populations of these areas. Population just moved to better living locations but the feudal system both required and allowed a more regular network of settlements on the territory.

Nowadays, having a castle protecting you 1000 meters high isn't really a necessity and the lack of a supermarket or the need to go around any mountain to get to it, has become more important than any other consideration. But in the past people have been living in the Massif Central for a long time. If Vercingetorix could make 200 thousands soldiers cross the massif to face the roman army up north, I don't think medieval armies could be considered any less capable.

Plus any impassable ridge in those moderate elevations would mean you'd have to place many many more in Europe. You'd have to add dozens of them in the Alps sub ranges alone for example : if you think the Vivarais or Cevennes are impassable, try the Vercors or Chartreuse, you still go around them today.

Ok, here's my first draft. Now shoot.

By the way, as a small wink to Solo, most names in Occitania are in Catalan. Mostly because I'm not sure of how should they be named correctly, so I'll let him point at the right terms.

Brittany provinces borders shape still bothers me :
- SWMH 2.74 already added the Trégor (between Léon and Penthièvre) so that's work already done
- The Porhoët literally means "through-the-forest" and its lords never owned any coastal region, it should be landlocked between Penthièvre, Rennais (Roazhon) and Vannetais (Gwened).
- For gamey reasons, the Dol region should be under the Rennes county (Dol as bishopric of Rennes county), the Dukes of Brittany tried several times to raise the bishop of Dol as Archbishop to balance the power of the Archbishop of Tours (under french rule) to settle an independant breton church.
- ... or the Dol bishopric could be another province ? (with religious settlement as main settlement)

Another region : the south-west, I found this map :

Some vicounties could be forgotten, some like tursan weren't very important. But the map is a good one for this region.
