  1. List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    This is why Sigmund blocked Ernst's reacquiring of Bavaria-Münich. OTL Sigmund backed Heinrich XVI of Landshut, Ernst, Ernst's bro, Wilhelm, and Johann III of Straubing against Rupprecht of Germany and his "kingmaker" Ludwig of Ingolstadt; TTL he BACKS Straubing and Landshut, but to reach a...
  2. List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    My bad. This is what happens when you're typing after midnight and you're too lazy to fact check. Thanks for catching it
  3. WI: Edward II Marries Isabel of Castile

    @Space Oddity has a scenario where Isabelle de France dies early and Edward II remarries to a daughter of Ludwig IV (OTL margravine of Meißen). However, I could also see - going by Kathryn Warner's blogs - a match between alt-Edward III and a Aragonese/Portuguese infanta. A daughter would likely...
  4. List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    Giovanna II, Queen of Naples [1414-1435] (1371-1435) m: 1394 Ernst, Duke of Bavaria-Münich [1402-1420*] (1373-1438) Ernest (1396-1397) Karl (1397-1398) Johanna (1399-1400) Sophie (b. 1400) m: 1412 Filippo Maria Visconti, Duke of Milan (b.1392)† Dukes of Milan Alberto, King of Naples...
  5. WI: Margaret Tudor was Born a Boy [ALT]

    :winkytongue:I could DEFINITELY see Fernando II being an obstacle and delaying giving away a province as a dowry. :winkytongue:
  6. Consequences for Europe of Napoleon accepting the Frankfurt Memorandum?

    Hence why I said it MIGHT turn into an Amiens 2.0
  7. Consequences for Europe of Napoleon accepting the Frankfurt Memorandum?

    Prussia got zip since she was a minor partner (even at OTL Vienna if Alexander said jump! Friedrich Wilhelm would ask "how high?") Would Sasha accept it? @alexmilman might be in a better place to answer it. FWIII WASN'T a popular figure at Vienna, since all he could talk about was the Bible and...
  8. WI: Margaret Tudor was born a boy?

    Only was Maria would still be available by 1502 is if her eldesr sister doesn't die and leave a widower who in all likelihood is going to wed a Spanish infanta. That said no way, no how is Louis offering his daughter to London. NOT unless he has a son. It's why he broke her original betrothal...
  9. List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    I agree with everything else you've posted about the current queen (abdication being ooc and all that), but AIUI Charles and Camilla were involved BEFORE he wed Diana. Camilla was married already, so it was an affair already. Although AFAIK her husband put up with it in a way that Di could've...
  10. WI: Mary I leaves behind an heir?

    Fair enough. Although, I'll admit I'm fascinated by the idea of a marriage of Liz-Segorbe. Segorbe AIUI would be from a NON-dynastic branch of the Trastamaras (not unlike the Beauforts in England). Her husband would be beholden to Felipe in a way that his Austrian vousins weren't. The match...
  11. WI: Felipe III Remarries to Eleonora de Medici?

    Any particular reason the English wouldn't do something similar? I know France has the whole 100YW as a reason to NOT agree to this, but would they run the risk of insulting/alienating England?
  12. List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage

    According to the German wiki, it was Ludwig VII of Bavaria-Ingolstadt (brother of France's Queen Isabeau) that wanted to marry Giovanna, both to further Wittelsbach ambitions in Lombardy (apparently in the reign of Rupprecht of the Palatinate, Ludwig put himself forward as a candidate for the...
  13. WI: Felipe III Remarries to Eleonora de Medici?

    Not sure if THAT'll be a good or a bad thing. OTOH, could also mean that England DOESN'T go to the aid of the Huguenots at La Rochelle to regain some "lost honour" as it were.
  14. WI: Felipe III Remarries to Eleonora de Medici?

    Another interesting effect of no Spanish messing around with England would be no way that Buckingham could convince James I that a war with Spain is necessary. Spain refuses outright, its a cooling of relations between London and Madrid, not necessarily WAR, rather than the insulted/wounded...
  15. WI: Felipe III Remarries to Eleonora de Medici?

    As in Charles marrying Maria of Spain? Or Charles marrying Élisabeth? Because, as I said, I DON'T see Felipe III going with that due to Charles' Protestantism. HOWEVER, what I COULD see happening is that Felipe III OUTRIGHT rejects the suit (sparing Charles a year's stay in Madrid). And a...
  16. WI: Casimir III impregnates Alice/Adelaide of Hesse

    Her niece was the emperor's daughter. And the marriage was unpopular in England because it brought ZERO benefits to England (IIRC didn't Richard II ACTUALLY have to PAY Wenzel a sum of money NOT unlike Henry VI and Marguerite d'Anjou). Why would Kasik's daughter fare ANY better.
  17. WI: Felipe III Remarries to Eleonora de Medici?

    Congrats buddy (on the masters part). Wondered why we don't see you around. If it's alright with you, I'll start with Felipe III living longer. It MIGHT not look very different to OTL (beyond with Lerma ipv Olivares). Felipe III was unbendingly Catholic, one historian writes that this was what...
  18. WI: Casimir III impregnates Alice/Adelaide of Hesse

    So many questions: like what benefit does a Polish match give to England? Not like Emperor Karl IV is ACTIVELY getting involved in the 100YW. In fact, Kasimierz' marriage to Adelaide was as a Luxemburg proxy, which means that if there's any "ill will" between Kasik and Adele, its likely to see...

    Willem II, King of Holland* [1652-1688], Stadtholder of Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Guelders and Overijssel [1647-1652], Prince of Orange, Baron of Breda [1647-1652] (1626-1688) m: 1641 Mary of England (1631-1671) Karel Willem†, King of Holland [1688-1709], Duke of Guelders [1673-1709], Prince...
