    WI: English victory at the Battle of Castillion

    >Win battle in Normandy, presumably stopping or delaying the French advance into Normandy. >Invest in defending Gascony. Sounds legit

    List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    Derby was part of the Lancastrian inheritance of Blanche. However I don't see it being alienated from the main demense. Richmond would work if the Bretons lose it as OTL. Prior to that he can go untitled (see Bedford, Gloucester and Cambridge). Edit: Regarding the Hereford thingamajig, if...

    Salisbury doesn't die at Orléans in 1428?

    @material_boy can correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't policy keeping people alive in the Lancastrian phase? Especially given she's a woman. Heresy is possible though.

    Salisbury doesn't die at Orléans in 1428?

    I'm not sure him sticking around could change the disaster that was Patay. We might be seeing a better English position in France long term, especially if Salisbury's able to get some victories the English could not, maybe delaying or butterflying the 1435 treaty of Arras. Might be he's...

    AHC: Iceland colonized by the Norse + someone else

    The Scots might take it if they decisively beat the norse in the reign of Alexander III. If you mean a colonization in the actual colonial period with coexistence, no idea.

    WI: John of Gaunt Dies in 1377?

    Currently known as Buckingham yes 😛 Richard was brought up in a martial atmosphere, the problem was that he was frequently expected to live upto the standards set by Edward III and TBP, which given their reps in effect scared him off fighting. If it's intensified in ATL, do we see a martial...

    WI: John of Gaunt Dies in 1377?

    They weren't allowed on the Council iotl, not sure they would be atl. Gaunt effectively held the reins because of his immense wealth, lands and partisans iotl, something both brothers lack, especially Cambridge. Though might be they're more palatable to the people. Given Cambridge's seeming...

    Family Trees from My WIs

    Interesting, though this'll butterfly Henry's marriage games so the build up to Agincourt is butterflied. Which may very well change alot of things.

    The Sunne in Splendour: A War of the Roses Timeline

    Richard Madden could do a good job as Dickon. Bradley James fits the general George look I see thrown around. I concur, though Henry seemed too wimpy at the execution. He wasn't *that* opposed to death.

    List of monarchs III

    ....you guys have said the HYW became 50 without specifying borders. I have several questions. A) Is Edward III's later reign still marked by domestic and international failure? B) Is there still a mass Gascon alienation with the English? If so, why? C) If the HYW is handwaved into being 50...

    WI: Edward IV marries Philippe of Burgundy's niece?

    It's not the woman in particular just not sure how Edward can marry in secret to Joanna as you seem to be implying. Or do you mean Edward will negotiate for Joanna in secret?

    WI: Edward IV marries Philippe of Burgundy's niece?

    Warwick was negotiating the match also according to Bob. What. England and Bourbon aren't exactly in close proximity so not sure how Edward will "coin out" or how Joanna works better. Edward is not known to have an aversion to older women.
