  1. Phillip II of Spain’s two sons

    I’m OTL, Phillip II of Spain and his third wife, Elisabeth of Valois had two daughters, Isabel Clara Eugenia and Catalina Micaela, but what if they were both sons (Named Philip and Ferdinand respectively)? I know Don Carlos’s death may be butterflied, but at the same time Philip didn’t exactly...
  2. Mary of Burgundy born male?

    I've thought about this for a while, but I have been preoccupied with other TL's to focus on it, but now I've found time to discuss this. What if Mary of Burgundy (Philip of Burgundy after his grandfather in this TL) was born a male instead of a girl? One thing that would obviously change is...

  4. WI: Universal Monarchy, Valois edition - One King for England, Spain, France, the Netherlands and Italy

    One of the things I find interesting in history was OTL's Charles V and the idea of a universal Christian monarchy. Charles V is often considered closest to this idea in the early modern era, with him having ruled the Hapsburg lands, much of the Burgundian inheritance, Spain, and parts of Italy...

  6. WI: Charles of Bourges left the France

    This thread was mostly inspired by discussion about succesful. Let's say that Charles Valois, also known as Charles the Well-Served or King of Bourges(also, OTL as Charles the Victorious) concludes, that and all hope for his cause is lost. Before Joan is able to reach him, Charles is already...

    WI/PC: Elizabeth I marries Francis of Anjou

    Of all of Elizabeth’s potential suitors, Francis of Anjou was one of, if not the closest to winning Elizabeth’s hand. Obviously she decided against the marriage due to religious and political concerns. But what if the marriage had gone through? Obviously, Elizabeth will probably not have issue...

Charles of Navarre as the only grandson of Louis X, by his mother Jeanne II of Navarre was a serious candidate for the French crown held by the...

    WI: Anne of Brittany died in 1498 instead of Anne of France?

    In OTL, Anne of Brittany had a daughter named Anne of France who died on her day of birth. But what if the opposite happened? What if Anne of Brittany died in childbirth while Anne of France lived? Let’s also assume that Charles VIII still dies on schedule leaving Louis of Orleans King...

  14. Sigismund of Luxembourg dies in 1385

    To be more precise-it happens in late spring or early summer of that year (classic horse ridding/hunting accident). What happens? Electorate of Brandenburg is just taken by his cousin Jobst a bit earlier, but most interesting things happens in Hungary. Sigismund's OTL mother-in-law dowager Queen...

    WI: Louis XII succeeds Louis XI?

    The POD to this is simple, shortly before Louis XI’s death Dauphin Charles passes away of an illness. This leaves Louis XII as Louis XI’s successor. So what happens next? Obviously Louis XII is going to pursue the annulment of his marriage to Jeanne of France sooner and will try and earn Anne of...

    Eleanor of Austria bears children for Francis I?

    I don't know why the hell they weren't trying for kids, tbh. Yeah, he and Claude had seven kids (four of those being sons), but literally only one son outlived Francis I (you'd think he'd be getting paranoid), plus the more the better right? And Eleanor wasn't infertile, she had a daughter, plus...
