    The Young King and the Queen Mother

    As stated in this thread, I had intended to write a timeline where Henry VIII and his firstborn son switch death dates (Henry VIII dies in 1511, the Duke of Cornwall dies in 1547). And thus, Katherine of Aragon gets a much happier life and England stays Catholic. Yes, I realize another user has...

    Fate and death, gives with one hand but takes away with the other!

    What are you doing? Well, hello to you too. I am starting a timeline that I will try and work on as much as possible. Why are you doing it? I tried making it into a simple Family Tree on List of Alternative Monarchs and Aristocratic Linerages, but it was becoming over grown and the footnotes...

    WI: Henry VIII died at the Battle of the Spurs?

    In OTL the Battle of the Spurs was a relatively minor battle between English and French forces, though became a major English propaganda piece. But what if Henry VIII died at the battle. Let’s say he falls from his horse. Now what? Obviously England is in crisis now, since they are now in a...

    What if Henry VIII Tudor, king of England, had died in the one jousting accident that nearly killed him in march 1524, prior to breaking church relations with Rome and without leaving a surviving heir besides Mary?

    What if The Pilgrimage of Grace had been more successful? By which I mean, actually achieved their stated goals - the end of the suppression of the monasteries and the punishment / dismissal of those who were carrying out it like Thomas Cromwell?
