no-one has parents, but heirs seem to call their overlord father/mother for no damn reason really.
essentially if the heirs do, so could the pikers and stabbers. but then again so could stanley's dwagons. yet i'm sure stanley wouldn't consider any of his units children. it's only the snooty royals who claim "they can trace their lineage back to the titans" who would even bother with such things.
so long story short any one who thinks stanley is ansom's son is an idiot.
You could argue that Royals are different. If you are a king, you get an extra build option of "pop royal". An overlord of the same side wouldn't be able to pop that unit. However, they would presumably have access to all of the other unit types.
Also, the "pop royal" build option could effectively be different for each particular royal. There is a direct connection between the King and the popped Royal.
If all of the royals in the world died, then it wouldn't be possible to pop any more of them, so it is like a lineage.

Well, he obviously liked his proposal to obtain lots of dwagons. Also, he accepted his advice on having the dragon relay system.

Everyone goes into stasis as a Neutral City, the princes are Barbarians (just like Jillian, who was designated Heir, turned Barbarian when FAQ was taken). Not to mention blowing the diplomatic center of the RCC2 out of the water, and shattering, or at least disorganizing, the only force capable of harming them.
Presumably, Ossomer has been promoted to Heir. Ideally, both Ossomer and Slateley need to be taken out on the same turn. Otherwise, Ossomer will become king as soon as Spacerock falls.
Furthermore, if you pull back and consolidate, you also give your opponent time to get his feet back under him. Right now, they've got the tactical advantage of being the aggressor. Keep it up, keep the opponents off their feet, and you maintain that advantage. Let them get some breathing room, and RCC2 *WILL* put together an army large enough to challenge you. You don't want that. You want them off balance, scattered, trying to figure out what the boop is happening.
Right, Ansom's plan is based on 14 cities popping units. However, Wanda (and now also Stanley) can effectively pop units faster than their cities can. Assuming it takes 5 turns per dwagon and Stanley can capture 2.5 per turn, he is equivalent to 12.5 cities dedicated to popping dwagons. Wanda is probably similar, if not more, while in expansion/combat mode.
Going straight for Jetstone is good. But spending multiple turns is not. Better idea: Take Unaroyal. Decrypt everything from that battle. Take entire Decrypted force, plus the entire Dragon Relay, and stomp all over Jetstone.
Ideally, you want a sudden strike at Jetstone. Perhaps, as they are taking Uniroyal, they should converge all their spare units in 1 city near Jetstone. That way, once the last Uniroyal city falls, they can instantly launch at Spacerock.
