[1] Sophie of Mecklenburg-Gustrow ends up giving birth to a stillborn son in 1577. Her husband Frederick II of Denmark dies shortly after, leaving Denmark in a succession crisis. James Douglas, Earl of Morton and regent for James VI of Scotland, successfully got the young monarch to be elected as King of Denmark and arranged his marriage to Frederick's only suriving child Anne (Elizabeth died in 1576 at the age of 3).
[2] Henry VI's wife Catherine ends up becoming Queen of France via a change to France's succession laws in an alternate version of the Treaty of Troyes and the sudden death of her father Charles VI in 1420. Catherine's brother (also named Charles) disputed her right to the throne and tried to take it himself, but was defeatd and executed due to Joan of Ark not receiving her vision to fight against the English.
[3] England-France supports Joanna la Beltraneja's side in the War of the Castilian Succession, allowing her to win. Unfortunately, her husband Afonso V of Portugal died in a hunting accident before the war's end. This causes her to remarry to Henry Tudor, who would later become King of England.
[4] William III lives 5 years longer than in OTL and marries an Portuguese Infanta after the death of his first wife Mary. The marriage doesn't result in any children and William is succeeded by his sister-in-law Anne.

Just wondering if you guys have a list of undeveloped places left to work on that I could look at? I support everything about this project its marvelous but I'm kinda castrated from mapmaking because of my schedule/not having a physical computer anymore aside from my smartphone lol, but I selfishly want to suggest a country for Bob to work on but idk which one he hasn't already accomplished 0:
If anyone wants to take a crack at an area this is a VERY rough map of what is available.
Red = Totally available
Pink = possible availability [open to negotiation]
White = open to negotiation but likely to be blended with existing IF accepted
