  1. Henry Tudor's Breton wife

    There were rumours, that knight Roland de Velville was Henry's illegitimate son, whom he had with some 'Breton lady'. That claim is baseless, although I've seen threads inspired by that story and going even further-Henry marries that Breton woman and has legitimate son with her. That would...

    WI: Arthur Tudor, Philip of Burgundy, and John of Asturias switch death dates?

    Just as the title says, these three Princes all swap death dates. Instead of dying in 1502, Arthur dies in 1497, while John dies in 1506 instead of 1497, and Philip of Burgundy dies in 1502. What would the effects of this be? Obviously, John dying in 1506 means that he'll likely have three or...

    What if Elizabeth Tudor married Emmanuel Philibert?

    As the title says, sometime during Queen Mary I’s reign, she marries Elizabeth to Emmanuel Philibert, Duke of Savoy, as was floated around in OTL. What now? Would Elizabeth still become Queen if she’s married to a foreigner? Obviously she’d have Philip’s backing but might some nobles resist?

    What if Edward IV lived to the end of 1483?

    So in 1483, Edward IV of England and Margaret Beaufort had just completed talks on allowing Henry Tudor (later King Henry VII) to return to England, with him being restored to his Earldom, being made the heir to his Mother's estates and even potentially being married to a daughter of Edward IV...

    What if Henry VIII had been better prepared to be King?

    In our timeline, the Tudors experienced a slight crisis when Arthur Tudor died unexpectedly in 1502 and the unprepared Prince Henry, Duke of York became heir. Henry is believed to have been prepared for a church career. But what if Henry VII had better prepared Henry VIII to be King. Let's say...

    So for those who do not know, Richmond Palace got fire in 1497, when nearly all of the Tudor family was there, (Only Arthur wasn't present). Thankfully the family escaped. But what if the fire had been worse or the Tudors present hadn't been as lucky? Let's say Henry VII, Elizabeth of York...

    What if Catherine of Aragon died on her way to England in 1501?

    During Catherine of Aragon's journey to England in 1501, it was quite stormy and if I remember correctly she had to return back to Spain.
