In As a queen, what must I do to take the son of my husband's dynasty out of succession line? the OP inquires on how to eliminate one specific son from succession.

In How do I prevent my imbecile son from being an heir? the OP also requests to know how to eliminate one specific son from succession.

Can I disown my heir? asks the very same thing

While it's true that they involve slightly different motives, they can be summed up to "How can I prevent one of my sons from inheriting?"

If the question was about any character other than a son, it would have a different scenario (and as such answers), but since all of them share the same answer, they would be considered duplicates.(?)

However, those answers are all on 40+,30+, and 15+ upvotes. What exactly should we do about it?

    but since all of them share the same answer, they would be considered duplicates - 2 different questions with the same answer doesn't make the questions duplicates

  • The questions ask exactly for the same thing, albeit with different things originating the need for the solution. In its core they're the same, and so are the answers.

    All 3 seem to be different scenarios. All 3 questions may have 1 shared answer, but possible that alternative answers could apply to only 1 of these 3 scenarios.

  • how come? "I want to open door X because..." (Scenario 1) "I want to go from A to B, (Scenario 2) "I want to go from B to A", (Scenario 3) I don't like closed doors. All of them ask to open the same door.

  • @camelCase "How do I kill my (*) son?", where * can be "Imbecile, non-dinastic or just unwanted. But the question is the same, how do I kill my son

    Well none seem to be asking how to kill a son. 1 is specific to removing a child from the succession line onto another child from another line, 1 is asking how to promote another child above the eldest and the other child is a generic question asking if it is possible to disown an heir. As already said, there may be 1 answer that covers all 3 questions but still possible for other answers that are specific to 1 or 2 of these 3 sample questions.
