    WI : Henry V outlives Charles V, Charles VI, and Louis III

    Here's a question that's been on my mind as I've started looking at the HYW and I read a few threads on Henry V outliving either Charles VI and Charles VII and on a thread (this one) about the latter, one person suggested the idea of Louis III Duke of Anjou, who OTL died in 1434 of Malaria...

    Threadmarks: Year of the Three Edwards

    Year of the Three Edwards From alt-Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Year of the Three Edwards, or the Year of the Three Kings, refers to the year 1377 in English history. The year is considered memorable because of the deaths of two kings, leading to a rapid succession of three monarchs of...
  3. Joan of Arc Champion of the English

    Looking into threads about the Hundreds Years War and the importance of Orleans, it got me wondering what would have happened if Joan of Arc visions told her to fight for the English rather than expel them like in OTL. What would have been her first course of action with such a mentality...
  4. WI: Henry V lives longer; leaves only daughters

    And lots of them! 1) Lady Mary (b. 10 Nov 1421) 2) Lady Blanche (b. 31 Aug 1423) 3) Lady Catherine (b. 8 Sept 1424) 4) Lady Isabelle (b. 20 Oct 1425, posthumously) So, the POD for this WI is that Henry V consummates his marriage with Catherine of Valois slightly earlier than OTL, resulting in...

    WI: Lancaster, Lancaster, Lancaster...

    Henry of Monmouth, V (1386–1422, r. 1413–22) married (1420–2) Catherine of Valois (1401-37), had issue: 1. Henry the Mad, VI (1420–, r. 1422–) 2. Edward of Windsor (1420–) 3. William of Kent (1421–) 4. Blanche of England (1422–) Assuming that all of them live to adulthood, how is the political...
  6. Other Nations Invade France During the Hundred Years War

    During the Hundred Years’ War with England and France duking it out over France, is it possible that other nations like Aragon, Savoy, and Navarre can join in the fray to invade France? Would England find it acceptable seeing other nations invading France? Could they be England’s Allie’s or...
  7. Ramifications of English Conquest of Flanders in the 14th Century

    As part of the Hundred Years War, England supported Flemish rebels in Ghent against the Count Louis "the Bad" and his son-in-Law Philip of Burgundy. Thanks to John of Gaunt's diversion of resources to Spain (whose throne he had a claim to) and general malaise and political incompetence in...

    The Ascendancy of Lancaster: King Arthur's Reign

    The Ascendancy of Lancaster: King Arthur's Reign The primary PoDs, before the beginning of the story, are as follows: Prince Thomas of Lancaster and Lady Margaret Holland had children, OTL they had none. They were: Lord Arthur (b. 1412) Lady Margaret (b. 1414) Lord Lionel (b. 1415) Lady...
  9. What if Henry Bolingbroke married Philippa Plantagenet?

    What do you think would happen in the timeline where Henry Bolingbroke married his cousin Philippa Plantagenet, Countess of Ulster? Assuming that they get papal approval for this marriage between first cousins, how do you think this marriage would affect history moving forward?

    Discussion: Best possible wife for Henry VI

    The title more or less says it all, who would be the best possible wife for Henry VI? In particular which of the potential brides that were floated around for Henry VI in OTL, would have been the most beneficial for him. This includes his reign up until the alt marriage, staying the same. I’d...

    I.I In the House of the LORD; Bonneval Abbey Hugh of Murat It was after Terce that Hugh now found himself in the presence of his master, Friedrich of the Palatinate, in a section of the library reserved for theological discussion. The older monk was considered by many of their order and...
  12. What would Henry V do if there was no French princess available?

    Spin off from that thread: https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/wanted-second-wife-for-philippe-the-good-of-burgundy.512293/#post-22055150 So, assuming that Catherine and Marie (just to prevent option, that Marie would be forced to leave monastery in such case) of France die between...

    What if Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, didn't marry Jacqueline, Countess of Hainault?

    As the title, says what if this (idiotic IMO) match never happened? For context, on his deathbed Henry V told his two surviving brothers, John and Humphrey that the Anglo-Burgundian alliance was crucial to maintaining England's holdings in France, and asked them to honour it. John respected this...
  14. WI: Culture of a France that gets independence from England sometime during the late 1700s to mid 1800s?

    Basically, France gets conquered by England during the Hundred Years War. However, this happens late in the Hundred Years War, when the English Nobility identified as English and not French. England dominates the union, instead of being absorbed by France. Sometime during the late 1700s to mid...
  15. Divided France after Hundred Years War?

    I looked through the various threads regarding the Hundred Years War, in which England somehow wins the war and obtains all control of France. But many threaders also point out that it would be just too difficult for the Plantagenet rulers to assert control over all of France. From a military...
  16. Alternate Hundred Years War with England-Scotland Personal Union

    How would the war play out if the Plantagenets had control of Scotland? The POD would be Edward II marrying a surviving Margaret maid of Norway and become king consort. now, they have been betrothed since childhood and i assume there would be some urgency from Ed I to produce an heir to...
  17. Black Prince remarries

    What if Black Prince was widowed not long after birth of Richard II and marries Constance of Castile, OTL duchess of Lancaster as his second wife (John of Gaunt likely marries her sister Isabel instead). Say that Black Prince has at leas one child with her. What would be effects? Most obvious...
  18. Henry VI has twin sister

    POD is biologically quite implausible (Henry VI having a twin and still being more or less the same person) but I'm curious about political consequences, so let's go forward with that change. What would be Henry's sister's (Mary?) fate and how would her existence affect situation of House of...

    WI: England wins the Hundred Years War, and France joins the HRE.

    Sure hope this hasn’t been done. In the event of an English victory in the 100YW they regain the lands they lost at the Treaty of Albeville, and proclaiming the Angevin Empire restored. And France, after losing catastrophically, collapses into small states ruled by the Dukes and Lords. These...
  20. Sixth Dauphin and successful Bourguignons

    Say that fifth son of Charles VI follows his brothers and dies young, before murder of John the Fearless, meanwhile youngest son of Charles VI, Philip (b. 1407) lives. Being just 12 years old in 1419 he'd be not such threat to his Burgundian cousin, also, let's assume that Dauphin Philip also...
