It would also depend on the family.  If the noble had a younger sibling
who was legitimate, then they could make a case that they should inheret
the title.  Also, if that noble was unpopular and did not have much
political power, his neighbors could go to a higher authority and try and
have his lands taken away, since his claim to them was not legitimate.
