  3. What if Prince Arthur of England, Prince Juan of Spain, Prince Miguel of Portugal and Prince Charles Orlando of France survived?
    Threadmarks: Prologue

    To steal from my fanfic summary (which I will be loosely using as a basis for this timeline): Between 1495-1502, four important Crown Princes died in history. But what if they didn't? What if when Arthur Tudor became king of England, those three princes were his counterparts? Six months after...

    Threadmarks: Chapter One - In which many children are born

    So, this happened instead of work: “By midsummer, the midwife was certain, Queen Anne was carrying more than one babe. She informed the Royal Couple to expect twins, though private records indicate she believed more may be possible. Due to the increased risk of multiple babes, Queen Anne...
  6. AU: Margaret Tudor was Born a Boy

    This is a separate thread for the same POD - but with different butterflies (you don’t need to read the other one to read this one). The main butterfly: what if William Tudor (male!Margaret) butterflied away the death of Arthur, Prince of Wales? Some plausible reasons for this: William Tudor...
  7. What If: Continuing Tudor Dynasty

    What would it take to have Edward VI married with an heir before his death? Besides drastically extending his life (a year or two is fine, but if he lives to his twenties it's not that hard to give him an heir). My first thought is a marriage to Lady Jane Grey, with one child (maybe another on...

    Six The Musical

    I recently ran across this musical about a month or two ago and have been infatuated with it ever since. The musical is called "Six", and the musical deals with the Six Wives of Henry the VIII. The six wives have come together to form a pop group and to decide who should be the lead singer in...

    A Stuart-wank TL

    Hello, all! I have been lurking on this forum for about 5 years now and have never posted anything - until today! I have been working on a timeline for several years now, and I want to turn it into a book, but before I started, I wanted to get some feedback from the most historically...
  12. WI: Edward Tudor, Son of Henry VII

    The usual listing of Henry VII's sons runs as follows: Arthur, prince of Wales Henry, duke of York Edmund, duke of Somerset However, there seems to be a third son (born between Henry and Edmund, apparently, although a birth year isn't listed): Edward, who died in 1499 (same year EDMUND was born)...

  17. Regarding Henry VIII's plans... Again.

    Hi, just had a question regarding the designs Henry VIII had for France. He went to war with France, and due to this, Scotland, many times. I just can't seem to find out why. Most of his many, many, many detractors say he sought out glory in war against the French, or to reclaim the lands held...

    Mary I dies giving birth to a daughter

    So, let's assume Mary I of England doesn't have cancer but that it is a baby. She then dies at approximately same time as OTL giving birth to a daughter. What happens next?
  19. If Perkin Warbeck takes the throne, what becomes of his "nephews"

    Perkin Warbeck attempted to claim the throne by claiming to be Richard, Duke of York, during the reign of Henry VII. Many believed Warbeck most notably, I believe, Richard's aunt the Duchess of Burgundy. If he had claimed the throne, typical 15th century logic dictates he'd remove all potential...
  20. Edward VI has twin sister

    I know that from biologicall POV this scenario is borderline ASB, but still barely on non-ASB territory. Say that on 12 October 1537 Queen Jane Seymour gave birth to twins: son named Edward (more or less OTL Eddie VI) and daughter, (named Jane, after mother?) , then dies like IOTL. We are...
