  1. Empires that never were

    Had a bit of Africa too.
  2. Wars of the Roses, Edward V and Prince Richard survive?

    I think he was made a ward of Dorset during Edward IV’s reign? Presumably that situation would persist with Edward living longer and no Richard III coup. Dorset would have some say over his marriage if so- Dorset doesn’t have any age appropriate daughters, but could probably turn up someone...
  3. Wars of the Roses, Edward V and Prince Richard survive?

    What of her brother Warwick, though?
  4. Wars of the Roses, Edward V and Prince Richard survive?

    What is the thinking here? Eldest daughter of the Catholic Monarchs on a second son seems a stretch.
  5. An Imperial Match: Anne Boleyn marries Charles V

    Interesting Ottoman developments.
  6. 1715 Jacobite Uprising (2023 Thread)

    This is probably cheating and not the point of the thread, but... the Georges both catch something infectious and die, the Hanoverian claimant is little Frederick who is still on the continent, and the Jacobites and their army waltz into the power vacuum?
  7. An Imperial Match: Anne Boleyn marries Charles V

    I don't know, John, seems like you were about to get upset.
  8. Prince Edmund Tudor, Duke of Somerset becomes King

    Any chance losing his two eldest sons and his wife in short succession takes a bit out of Henry VII and leads to an earlier death?
  9. The Cross Rises: Anjou over the Ayyubids

    Baldwin I and the Dowager Countess of Sicily?
  10. The Tragedy of Arthur Prince of Wales by William Shakespeare - Some Historical Background

    I think the ‘Prince Arthur’ of the title and the passage you quoted is the son of King Arthur and Catherine of Aragon?
  11. WI: Henry VIII dies in 1524

    Thought the first one was dead by our POD?
  12. WI: Henry VIII dies in 1524

    Fair bit younger than her.
  13. Henry VII dies shortly after taking the English throne

    ... Simnel's story was that he was Warwick, not Edward V/Richard of Shrewsbury? Think this has come up before- whilst the Wiki has this putative Thomas Beaufort down as 1442-1517, my newer version of Weir's book has him dying young ''before 1463.'' Reasonable to think he's off the table by...
  14. Henry VII dies shortly after taking the English throne

    A potential, papering-over-the-cracks compromise option would be something like a Warwick and Elizabeth of York marriage + a horrifyingly unstable regency council consisting of some combination of Stanley, Jasper, Lincoln and whoever else has some semi-plausible claim to power.
  15. With the Crescent Above Us 2.0: An Ottoman Timeline

    Hope everything is alright! Always found British preoccupation with the Russian threat to India fascinating.
  16. A Queen Twice Over: Mary Tudor the Elder Marries Francis I of France

    Merry Christmas and such to you as well.
  17. An Imperial Match: Anne Boleyn marries Charles V

    Merry birthday and happy Christmas.
