    New Duchess of Brittany


    Margaret of Foix died at the Château de Nantes in Nantes and was buried in the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul , a tomb constructed in the early French Renaissance style, after the death, her husband quickly remarried to Catherine of Navarre, the sister of the King of Navarre, Francis Phoebus of Navarre, Catherine of Navarre would give birth to a son named Arthur on December 2, 1489.


    Brittany and Navarre would have reinforced their ties by the marriage of Catherine of Navarre and Francis II, duke of Brittany, she would have been a proven to be not a good regent to the Duchy of Brittany, she would have arranged the future marriages of her stepdaughters, Anne and Isabeau.

    The arrival of Cecily in Scotland

    On 1485, preparing for the plan to regain the throne of England, Cecily of York is sent to Scotland in order to be betrothed to Prince James of Scotland, the bride is three years older than the groom, Cecily would arrive in 1486 and she would feel strange at her own arrival in Scotland, the Scots would welcome the English Princess who would be the new Queen of Scotland, Cecily and James would have a good relationship, however, the marriage would be delayed until 1488, on the majority of Prince James of Scotland.


    Due to the betrothal of James of Scotland to Cecily, the Scots would ally with the people who are planning the restoration of Edward V who is currently on the low countries waiting for his own campaign against his usurper uncle Richard, since he is currently on his majority, he would seek a good bride for him to marry and Juana of Castile, the second daughter of the Catholic monarchs would seem to fit to marry to him as Juana herself is of lancastrian blood and would swamp the claims of the remaining Lancastrians.

    Joanna of Portugal, Queen of France holding a baby

    The Queen Regent


    On 1482 or 1483, Joanna of Portugal would have many choices of who to marry and she was proposed for many who wanted her and one of that was Louis XI who wanted an ally with Portugal against a strong united Spain.


    John II would force Joanna to marry the Dauphin the son of Louis XI, Charles who is nearing his age of majority, Joanna herself is outraged by this possibility but she will honor her own brother’s choice in her marriage and the marriage must happen soon.


    Joanna of Portugal would have a proxy wedding with the Dauphin on 1483 and when she arrived in France she would be surprised to find that the Dauphin is well enough very young enough to be her own son but that did not stop her from doing her duties as a queen although she is against the marriage at the beginning and it did not stop her from having two children, Charles Orlando(December 10, 1484) and Catherine of France(December 10, 1490).


    Joanna would be crowned as queen and became the queen regent of France for her husband after the death of her father in law, Louis XI, on her husband’s majority on 1491, she would die of Puerperal fever due to giving birth to a second child, she would be buried on the Saint Denis Cathedral on her death, her husband would be buried beside her and his second wife beside them as well.

    The Navarrese marriage

    On 1484, Princess Elizabeth of York would go to Navarre after she was married by proxy to Francis Phoebus of Navarre, she would arrive on the latter part of 1484 and met her husband.


    Her dowry would be provided by the Catholic Monarchs and Mary of Burgundy in order to prevent a marriage of La Belraneja and Francis, before Elizabeth came to Navarre, Juana, the daughter of Henry IV of Castile would die of suspicious causes and it was said that she died of poisoning after she put on her veil, the King of England certainly knew that Elizabeth of York will be in Gascony which was once owned by the Kings of England, her marriage would provide an alliance between England and Navarre as long as she lived.


    Elizabeth of York would provide Francis Phoebus of children as it was her duty as the Queen of Navarre, Elizabeth of York would give birth to the following;

    Gaston of Navarre b. September 20, 1485

    Madeleine of Navarre b. November 28, 1489

    Edward of Navarre June 28, 1491

    Anna of Navarre July 2, 1492

    Catherine of Navarre February 2, 1500

    Kunigunde


    In 1480, during the visit of Duke George of Bavaria, called "the Rich", to Frederick's court in Vienna. George was solemnly enfeoffed with the Imperial estate of Bavaria-Landshut and after the celebrations Kunigunde was sent to Burggraf Ulrich III von Graben to Graz for her safety; however, after a plot against the emperor was discovered, he moved to Linz and sent Kunigunde to the Tyrolean court in Innsbruck with Archduke Sigismund of Austria, Frederick's first cousin and former guardian.


    The Emperor learning that Albert IV of Bavaria wants to marry his daughter would ask Elizabeth Woodville for the hand of her daughter Mary to marry the duke of Bavaria, the Emperor will not want to waste Kunigunde to marry someone else as she is the one to marry the eventual future heir of Poland, John Albert and have Mary of York marry Albert IV of Bavaria in 1483 as soon as she was a mature woman and able to marry him.

    On 1484 a proxy marriage between the Polish heir, John and Kunigunde of Austria would have been made, this marriage would have caused a split between Vladislaus and John, the dowry of Kunigunde would have included the recognition of the sole Polish suzerainty of the old Polish Silesia in the North and East of Oder whose duchies has a Polish Population in exchange of his retracting claims to the Kingdoms of Bohemia and Hungary and a recognition of Maximilian’s claims to Bohemia and Hungary after the death of Vladislaus II of Bohemia.


    Kunigunda would have given birth to three surviving children to John Albert namely Anna (December 10, 1486), Sigismund (June 2, 1491) and Catherine(May 10, 1500) with two stillbirths in 1493 and 1502, her fertility would be ruined by an accident in 1502 due to a fall from a horse.

    No marriage for Margaret of York? And I love the idea of Juana marrying Edward. I'm sure she would have had a much happier life as Queen of England...

    I see no reference to Margaret's death in any of your earlier posts, but I'll take your word for it. This is an interesting idea, watching.
