    Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon have six sons

    This is basically the opposite version of my previous post, during the marriage of Catherine of Aragon and Henry VIII, Catherine ended up getting pregnant six times of which four resulted in stillbirths, one in 1511 which produced a baby named Henry who lived less than 2 months and another that...
  2. WI: Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn have "hopeless cause" son.

    How different history of England would have been, if Anne Boleyn final pregnancy in 1536 resaulted in birth of a (physically) heathy son? However, this son will eventually grow into something... far from worthy succesor. Let's say that this Prince of Wales will never learn to read (he struggled...

    Three Sisters, Three Queens

    What if all the daughters of Katherine of Aragon survived, with the queen herself dying in childbirth during her final pregnancy? And a surviving Katherine Tudor married John III of Portugal, while Mary Tudor the elder married Charles V as his first wife? We would have two generations of three...

    Henry & Katherine: Tudor Heirs

    My spin on the "All of Katherine of Aragon's children survive", an AU where she also had the same child mortality rate as her sister Joanna. Here are their children: 1. Katherine b. 1510 2. Elizabeth b. 1510 3. Henry b. 1511 4. Edmund b. 1513 5. John b. 1514 6. Mary b. 1516 7. Margaret b. 1518...
  8. What if Henry VIII's children by his first three wives had had children/gotten married?

    What would happen? Of course this would require Elizabeth to not be sexually abused by Katherine Parr's new husband, in order for her to even consider marriage (and she still might not, who knows). What if Henry had arranged marriages/betrothals for Mary and Elizabeth before his death? Mary was...
  9. Monarch approved matches for Tudor Claimants under a Marian reign

    The premise is Mary ascended to the throne after her father died in his 1536 jousting accident. She married her cousin James V King of Scots. Elizabeth had to take the veil as a child and died young. So, who would be safe matches for the Tudor/ Stewart claimants? Frances Brandon and the 2nd...

Yet he still had to wait for it, and his situation wasn't any better than before. Yet he...
