  1. The Pilgrimage of Grace

    What if The Pilgrimage of Grace had been more successful? By which I mean, actually achieved their stated goals - the end of the suppression of the monasteries and the punishment / dismissal of those who were carrying out it like Thomas Cromwell? I don't think King Henry VIII would ever really...

    The Queen is Dead!: Katherine of Aragon dies in 1518
    Threadmarks: I: 10 November 1518

    So, I've been lurking on this site for a while and now that I'm officially a member, I thought I'd explore making a timeline based off one of my old Tudor Fanfictions. The advantage being that I have the whole basic story written, so I can just rewrite the bits I think need it. As such, updates...

    James, Duke of Rothesay (b. 1540) survives to adulthood

    Per OTL, the oldest son of James V and Marie de Guise, James, Duke of Rothesay died at 11mo; however, in the event he AND his younger brother Arthur, Duke of Albany (b.1541) survive to adulthood what effects would this have? James V, Henry VIII, Mary Tudor, and Edward VI all die per OTL; also...

    WI: Catherine Parr had a child?

    We know that Kate isn't really barren, as she had a daughter named Mary after she married Tom Seymour. So what if instead of with Tom, she had a child by Henry? If she has a son (Henry? Owen?), that son will inherit should Edward die as scheduled. Would she be regent for her son, as she was...
  5. The Fates of the Grey Sisters if No 9 Days Rule?

    I saw Philippa Gregory's book, The Last Tudor about the great-nieces of Henry VIII, the Grey sisters, today in a bookshop, which got me to thinking. Much has been made of Jane being successful in holding the throne, but what would her and her sisters' fates be if they had simply kept their heads...

    WI Protestant Hapsburg's

    So what if Queen Mary's false pregnancy was real and a daughter is born. So sometime in '55 a daughter is born who is named Catherine after the Queen's mother. However soon enough little Catherine is crowned and through the suspicions of the Spanish, a Protestant faction is successfully able to...
  7. Katherine of Aragon and Her Royal Daughters

    Another Henrician queen question for all you wonderful people: What if Katherine of Aragon's daughters had survived birth/infancy? Usually there are three documented, a miscarried girl in 1510, Mary in 1516 and a second stillborn/shortlived daughter in 1518. So, Kate's first child, if she's...
  8. Tudor Marriage Suitors

    This is totally AU but if Henry had 3+ children and betrothed them while they were in childhood (I.e while he was alive), who do you think he would marry them off too? As in the best choices (strongest allies, etc) obviously considering his break from the Catholic Church! Child 1 - Female...

    Mary I [Scotland] and Edward VI [England]? Successful Rough Wooing?

    What do you think would have resulted if King Henry VIII had been successful in his rough wooing, and was able to force Dowager Queen Marie De Guise to hand over her daughter Queen Mary I of Scots to be raised in England? Also, let's say that Edward VI were to live a long and healthy life rather...
  10. Mary I has a daughter

    What might have happened if Mary's phantom pregnancy in 1554 had proved true and she'd successfully carried a child to term? Specifically, I wonder what might have happened if she'd managed to give birth to a daughter. The sole product of their union and heiress to England itself even since I...
