  1. The family of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon

    Might well. If he WAS poisoned as suspected. There's a good chance Caterina de Medici might be born male or her parents don't die which means she's less valuable for the duc d'Orléans (which would remove the potential poisoner - not saying she did or that it WAS poison, just what people thought...
  2. Theobald III of Navarre

    You rang? I'd say much would depend on Thibaut's personality. If he's too ambitious (Carlos el Malo) he'll break on either Phil's France or Edward's Gascony and ¡hasta la vista! any lands in France. Ideal type would be someone who doesn't make himself too problematic, either for Edward or...
  3. Queen Margaret I of England

    Agreed. But Rodrigo (after El Cid) is a good second
  4. DBWI:Anne of Brittany and Louis XII have no male issue

    Ooc: They were that OTL. Why does her marriage take place earlier here? Karl V obviously still succeeds as king of Spain (based off his and Claude's daughter's title/name), so what makes him let his sister marry earlier here?
  5. Queen Margaret I of England

    Diego sounds fun. Antonio might be regarded as unlucky given that Manuel already had a son with that name who died.
  6. DBWI:Anne of Brittany and Louis XII have no male issue

    Obviously Mary Tudor the elder wouldn't assert a restraining hand on her husband, Christian II of Denmark. Ooc: the son of João III is a born when Katharina's pretty young (she'd only be 16yo), since she only married 2 years later OTL, what changed?
  7. Queen Margaret I of England

    Fair enough. Would she name her son Carlos though? Mean, I know all traditional Iberian names (João/Juan, Fernando, Duarte, Luiz and Affonso/Alfonso, Henrique are taken, but Carlos seems a bit unlikely if Karl V DOESN'T become king of Spain, no?)
  8. The family of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon

    Kristina or Dorothea of Denmark are more likely. Portugal's ALREADY an ally, Denmark's only a recent friend IIRC.
  9. Queen Margaret I of England

    I once saw an alt-history where Ferdinand succeeds as king of Spain (can't remember what the POD is), and lacking a replacement sister for the widowered Manuel, offers the equally widowed Germaine.
  10. The family of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon

    This, most likely. Will be even worse if sonny boy is a "better" Renaissance prince than Hal.
  11. The family of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon

    This being the same man whose treatment of his eldest daughter was regarded, even by the standards of the day, as harsh?
  12. List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    According to what I've read there were plans to engage her to Fernando VII (not the decade younger Molina) and earlier, a betrothal to Carlos Domingo (b.1780) with the intention by Spin of doing this if Louis XVI had no son. But then Louis Joseph was born in 1781, Carlos Domingo died in 1783...
  13. A Manhã do Nevoeiro - A Portuguese Timeline

    In 1576. Bella was either suspected by her husband of having an affair or actually was, and the guy had her strangled with a dogleash. A month later, Bella's brother, Pietro, murdered his Toledo wife in a similar fashion.
  14. PC: Why Does Charles VIII ALWAYS Die...

    Can see why Friedrich III called his son "melodramatic". A trait inherited from Max's Portuguese mom perhaps?
  15. PC: Why Does Charles VIII ALWAYS Die...

    To which instructions of Maxie's are you referring?
