  1. Blooming rose - Tudor TL
    Threadmarks: August 1528

    Grafton Regis. Kingdom of England "Where are you going, Henry?" Catherine of Aragon asked as she entered the chamber, her rustling skirts tinkling. "Where are you going?" Henry turned around and saw his wife standing in the doorway. There was a bustle all around, servants were carrying out...
  2. what if maria of aragon and her sister, catherine of aragon, switched places? i.e., in birth order, marriages, and such.

    i'm still VERY new to this site so please excuse any mistakes 😭 i had this idea whilst browsing over the children of maria, especially after the birth of another son in 1509. maria had more luck than most of her family with these pregnancies, in that quite a few survived the birth and lived to...
  3. WI: Henry VIII has no children

    What if Henry VIII never has any children? None of the women he's with never even gets pregnant by him. Does he try to get rid of Catherine and remarry earlier? What does he do when none of his wives provide him children? How would this affect the English Reformation? Do we see a succession...

    WI: Henry VIII has a daughter from Catherine Parr

    Parr being Henry's last wife, and the one to which he died married, what if she had borne him a daughter? Despite the Elizabeth-Mary-Anne obsession of the period, let us call her Eleanor. She will presumably be raised Protestant, and be fully legitimate, as Henry had no severe grievances with...
  5. WI: Henry VIII had more illegitimate children

    OTL, Henry VIII had as many problems with fathering illegitimate childre as with procreation within marriage. Only one son was acknowledged - Henry Fitzroy, known from his bad health, resulting in his demise in 1533. Henry was so desperate for a male heir, that he even considered marriage...
  6. Henry VIII's annus horribilis: Edward VI dies before Henry in 1545

    1545 was an annus horribilis for Tudor England and its corpulent tyrant. Not only did Henry VIII's best friend, the Duke of Suffolk, die, but the war with France was at an expensive stalemate after the withdrawal of Charles V from the Italian War. Domestically, Tudor England was ravaged by two...
  7. Anne, Duchess and Queen - an Anne of Brittany TL

    I know who I am crazy to start another TL when I am already writing other two (and I have more in the works who will be published sooner or later) but this stopry truly wanted written… Hopefully it will be a shorter TL more like Henry VIII’s heiress than my others but we will see what will...
  8. Euphemios

    A more reasonable Henry VIII?

    I am assuming for the sake of this thought experiment that Henry's moral compass ends up being a lot like ours, rather than his historical one which gained him his infamy. We could have different PoDs, since the earlier scenarios would butterfly the troubles that would occur later. For one from...
  9. A Breeze of English Rose - Tudor TL
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1. An heir is born.

    Chapter One. An heir is born. 1511 On January 1, 1511, bells rang out throughout England, especially in London, announcing the good news. Because on that day, about thirty minutes after one in the morning, Henry VIII's wife, Catherine of Aragon, gave birth to a son! Catherine, of Spanish...
  10. archdukeofwasia

    Mary Tudor Jr. marries Philip of Palatinate-Neuburg and has a son.

    What if Henry VIII allowed the match to happen? If Mary and Philip have sons, what are the changes in the English succession? Also, if Mary becomes queen like in OTL, what happens to Elizabeth?
  11. WI: After Anne Boleyn's execution, Elizabeth had vanished from history (just like Mary Seymour did from the OTL)?

    How would Henry react? Would he care or he would be relieved that the daughter of his most hated wife has disappeared? What would the fate of England be like with Elizabeth gone?
  12. The Gybson Boy

    Henry VIII has a son in 1518, but Mary marries Charles V and inherits the throne in 1536.

    Charles V and I, Holy Roman Empire, King of the Spains and his wife Mary Tudor, Holy Roman Empress, Queen of the Spains and heir of the english throne in 1536 November 10, 1518: Catherine of Aragon gives birth to a healthy son who is christened Edward, Duke of Cornwall November 10, 1522: Prince...
  13. WI; All 3 of Henry the 7ths sons survive?

    What if (King) Arthur, Henry Duke of York and Edmund Duke of Somerset all survive to adulthood? I am most interested in Edmund, as he is the biggest question mark of the bunch... For the sake of the scenario, I will say that Arthur still marries Catherine of Aragon and both survive their...
  14. The Prince of the Roses - A Tudor TL
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1 - Greenwich 1516

    Chapter 1 – A most fortunate birth - Greenwich 1516 Every church bell in London rang out loud in the city in on the 18th of February in 1516. To the commoners in the streets and the merchants in their houses it meant one thing had occurred. The speculations about the queen’s latest pregnancy...
  15. PC: Margaret Tudor becomes Queen of England?

    In 1524, Henry VIII had a jousting accident; he forgot to lower his visor and suffered a blow to the head above his right eye. He didn’t suffer any serious damage. However, let’s say that instead this blow is more serious and he dies shortly thereafter. He leaves behind Mary and Henry FitzRoy...

    The woes of the wimple: Anne Boleyn is sent to a nunnery
    Threadmarks: Nunnery

    I don’t know why I’m posting a TL as I already have my hands full. I’m bored though and my little sister is egging me to do one about Anne Boleyn so I got this idea. I am going to be tackling this tl and my Katherine Howard has twins one right now so the other ones are getting once a week...

    Rosa Sine Spina: Kitty Howard Is Pregnant in 1541
    Threadmarks: I: York, July 1541

    So: My creativity has hit rock bottom recently - I know *what* I want to write, but I haven't written a word for weeks. I'm hoping that, by posting the new TL I've promised you all, it might serve as a spur to get on and write again, either for this or for 'Titulus'. As promised, therefore...
  18. English Civil War in 1536

    Inspired by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Cl%C3%A9ment Furious that Anne Boleyn's execution has not led to reconciliation with Rome, a fanatical Catholic/monk dispossessed by the dissolution of the monasteries(maybe John Hallam, who took part in the 1537 Bigod's Rebellion) determines...

    WI: Mary I marries Philip of Bavaria and has a child?

    This is a bit of a long winded one, but the idea came to me and I think it’s a really interesting one, so here we go: In otl, Philip of Bavaria, Duke of Palatine-Neuberg, tried to win Mary’s hand in marriage for some time, though he ultimately failed due to Mary’s reluctance and later Henry’s...
