It seems in other shows and novels people get confused with who can inherit, in Discworld Lady Ramkin seems to be the heir to the Ramkin estate despite the fact that are probably male heirs. In the British show Monarch of the Glen the cousin became the heir for no good reason, the real heir was still alive.
