    A Queen that Never Was: A Joanna of Castile TL
    Threadmarks: .

    Tordesillas, Castile. 12 April 1555. Joanna of Castile groaned as she pulled herself up into a sitting position, pulling a letter from the sleeve of her night clothing and holding it in her wrinkled hand as she removed the paper from the envelope, tears forming in her eyes as she began to read...

    WI: Joanna of Castile dies in 1500?

    The title says it all, in OTL, Joanna fell ill after the birth of Charles V, though she would survive. Here she isn’t so lucky, and succumbs to her illness. What now? Who does Philip go Burgundy remarry to, and how is the Spanish succession affected?

    WI: Leanor of Austria and her daughter Maria of Viseu as the heirs of Juana I and Felipe

    Basically as the tin says, what if Leanor’s brothers, Charles and Ferdinand, predecease Leanor without issue? IOTL she was wed to the King of Portugal, having Maria of Viseu as issue, and the King of France. Assuming she still wed the King of Portugal and only had Maria of Viseu as an heir, who...
  4. A Trastámara Spain

    What if Catalina of Aragon died in 1502 (instead of her husband Arthur) and the death of another child was a too hard blow for her mother Isabella who would die shortly after and before Juana and Philip’s arrival in Castile (as their journey would be delayed by Juana becoming again pregnant...

    What if Philip I of Castile died in 1500?

    So earlier today I was reading isabella's excellent Juana, the Heretic Queen when I had the thought, what if shortly after the birth of the future Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, Philip died in 1500. Could Joanna, as Queen of Castile rule in her own right without all the allegations of being mad...

    There and Back Again: The English Journeys of Catherine of Aragon
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Hello everyone, so I decided to start a second timeline (I'll still update my first one, but I wanted to mix things up with a more narrative one). Anyway, I've decided to explore the possibility of Catherine of Aragon not marrying Henry VIII, going back to Spain for several years, and then...
  7. What if Juana I of Castile had married another man and managed to rule alone?

    It is known that Juana was not crazy, and was an intelligent and competent woman. Without the toxic relationship with her husband, father and son, Castile's history would have been very different. Would she inherit Aragon (Ruled by the salic law) and unify Spain? What would be the agenda of...
  8. WI: Fernando II of Aragon Had Left Aragon, etc. to Ferdinand of Austria?

    As it says on the tin. Fernando II had an obvious preference for his namesake grandson. Even intending that the native-born Ferdinand succeed him instead of Karl V. So, what if he makes good on this decision? How can he make good this decision? And did he only intend Fernando to succeed him in...
