AHC: Form an alternate Dynasty/Royal Family/Nobility

A thread based off the List of Alternate Monarchs and Aristocratic Lineage, AH Royal/Imperial/Noble Titles Game and AHC: Form alternate/new ethnic groups of the world.

There have been various royal or imperial dynasties and royal houses. Here, the challenge is to make your own dynasty/house, with specific details like its history. Here's is a template to get started.

Name: [Insert name of Dynasty]
Title(s): [Insert titles]
Region of Origin: [Insert region of origin]
Region of rule: [Insert country of rule]
Founder: [Insert Founder]
Timespan: [Insert Timespan]
History: [Insert History]

Side note: It doesn't have to be an Imperial Dynasty or Royalty. It can be nobility, aristocrats, or even Political Families of republics.

For example:

Name: Borgia Dynasty
Title(s): Roman Emperor, King of Naples and Sicily, Duke of Romagna, Duke of Lombardy, Duke of Etruria, Gonfalonier of the Roman Papacy
Region of Origin: Spain, Italy
Region of Rule: Italy "Restored Roman Empire"
Founder: Cesare I
Timespan: 1505 - Present
History: After Cesare Borgia successfully conquered Tuscany, his father died in 1504. With that, he went back to Rome, and put a puppet Pope in charge. From there, he had himself proclaimed "Roman Emperor", with his territory the "Restored Roman Empire". After decades of fighting back the forces of the HRE, Spain, France, and other Italian States, he successfully maintained his rule. His descendants would continue to conquer the Italian Peninsula, growing this Restored Roman Empire to this day.

Name: House of Tepelenlis
Title(s): Kayser-i Rum, Basileus, Crown-Bearer, Sultan of Sultans, Khan of Khans
Region of Origin: Pashalik of Janina
Region of Rule: The Sublime Roman State (Rumistan)
Founder: Ali I
Timespan: 1788 - Present
History: Mahmud II dies, leaving the Ottoman Empire as the main sultanic line dies out. Allied to Napoleon of France, Ali Pasha of Janina takes over the Ottoman lands in Rumelia and Anatolia in the chaos. His descendants still rule to this day.
Name: House of Brunswick-Luneberg, American line/House of Columbia
Title(s): King of America
Region of Origin: Kingdom of Hanover, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland
Region of rule: The Kingdom of America
Founder: William I Henry
Timespan: 1796-
History: After a longer, bloodier and indecisive American Revolutionary War in which France does not enter into, the Thirteen Colonies compromise on a monarchy separate from the United Kingdom, led by George III's brother the Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh, who becomes William I Henry.
Name: Sur Dynasty
Title(s): Padishah of India, Sultan of Delhi, Emir of Afghanistan
Region of Origin: Afghanistan and Bengal
Region of rule: Indian Subcontinent
Founder: Sher Shah Suri
Timespan: 1538-1900s
History: Sher Shah Suri survives and consolidates rulership over East India (his initial powerbase), North India and Afghanistan, essentially reviving the Delhi Sultanate under his Sur Dynasty. He also defeats Humayun when he tries to reclaim his birthright, causing the Mughal Empire to be stillborn ITTL and the Timurid-Gurkani-Mughal Dynasty to retreat back to Persia and eventually fade into insignificance. The powerbase of the Sur Dynasty is their fellow Afghans, as well as native Indian Muslims and martial Hindu aristocrats that are co-opted into their system (e.g. Rajputs, Jats, Marathas, etc), rather than Turco-Persians. The Sur Dynasty establishes Hindustani rather than Persian as its official language, although Sunni Islam remains its official religion. There is a flowering of Indo-Muslim art, culture, philosophy, fashions, cuisine and architecture under the Sur Dynasty (much like under the Mughals IOTL), but with more native Indian influences. However, given that the Sur Dynasty's ancestral homeland is Afghanistan (and the fact that their Mughal enemies tried to reconquer India with Safavid Persian assistance from the northwest), the Sur Dynasty maintains more of a focus on westward defences than the Mughals did. This means greater deterrence against Turco-Persian steppe invaders and more heavy recruitment from the Pashtun tribes of Afghanistan into the Sur Dynasty's army and administration, resulting in more diasporic Pathan communities across the Indian Subcontinent. Eventually, the Sur Dynasty expands into South India to unify the entire Indian Subcontinent. The Sur Dynasty maintains control over India and prevents the Indian Subcontinent from being directly colonised by European imperialists, but I've put an end date of 1900s to show that they may eventually be overthrown by a native Indian revolution like the Qing Dynasty was IOTL.

Name: Muhammad Ali dynasty
Title(s): Sultan and Padishah of Egypt, Sudan, the Maghreb, Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Arabia, Anatolia, the Caucasus and Rumelia, Caliph (Commander of the Faithful), Guardian of the Twin Holy Cities, Protector of Jerusalem, Ghazi and Mujahideen
Region of Origin: Albania/Macedonia and Egypt
Region of rule: Egypt, Sudan, the Maghreb, Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Arabia, Anatolia, the Caucasus and Balkans (formerly the Ottoman Empire)
Founder: Muhammad Ali of Egypt
Timespan: 1805-present day
History: Following Muhammad Ali's consolidation of power in Egypt, his campaign against the Ottoman Sultan is more successful (in part due to a lack of European interference) ITTL, allowing him to defeat and seize control of the whole Ottoman Empire, depose the Ottoman dynasty and replace them with his own dynasty as rulers of the former Ottoman territories and leaders of the Muslim world. The dynamism of Muhammad Ali and his (hopefully better than OTL) successors allows him to revitalise, expand and modernise the former Ottoman Empire, such that it remains powerful, united, stable and the premier Islamic state to this day.

Name: Afsharid Dynasty
Title(s): Shah of Iran, Transoxiana and the Caucasus, Sultan of Iraq, Syria and Anatolia, Emir of Afghanistan, Padishah of Hindustan
Region of Origin: Khorasan
Region of rule: Iran, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Iraq, Syria, Anatolia, Afghanistan and North-western India
Founder: Nader Shah
Timespan: 1736-present day
History: Nader Shah doesn't go insane and murder his own heir, instead consolidating and stabilising the Afsharid Empire, including trying to reduce the schism between Shia and Sunni Islam. His successors are more competent than IOTL, maintaining Afsharid authority over their territories, holding to defensible borders, defeating enemies like the Europeans (especially the Russians), Ottomans, Sikhs, Marathas, Rajputs and Afghans, modernising their state and maintaining harmony within their realm, allowing them to last to the present day.
Name: Jochid/Genghisid Dynasty
Title(s): Khan of the Golden Horde, Khagan (Khan of Khans) of the Mongols, Emir of Tartary, Sultan of Sarai, Ghazi and Mujahideen
Region of Origin: Mongolia and Cumania
Region of rule: Eurasian Steppe, Volga, Urals, Siberia, Central Asia, Caucasus and Mongolia
Founder: Batu Khan (reoriented under Ozbeg Khan, who made Islam the state religion of the Golden Horde)
Timespan: 1242-1900s
History: The Golden Horde reforms, stabilises, modernises and lasts to the modern day while encompassing most of the Eurasian Steppe, preventing the rise of the Russian Empire. At its height the Golden Horde is the largest state in the world. It becomes industrialised and experiences a population boom with massive urban centres, but its political system remains autocratic and despotic, leading to a revolution that deposes the Jochid/Genghisid Dynasty in the early modern era.

Name: Mannerheim
Title(s): king of Finland
Region of Origin: Germany/Sweden
Region of rule: Finland
Founder: Carl I Mannerheim
Timespan: 1797 - present
History: History goes differently in Europe. France becomes constitutional monarchy in early 1790's so no Napoleonic Wars. Another important thing is that king Gustaf III avoids assassination attempt in 1792. Finnish nobility is pretty unhappy with the king and they begin mutiny in 1794. With Russian support Finland manage to gain independence. Finnish revolutionary leaders decide make Finland monarchy and call important political leader Carl Erik Mannerheim as first king of Finland. Finland is pretty long just Russian puppet but eventually it gains more independence and manage create more connections to other European nations.
Name: House of Cico
Title(s): King of the Philippine Islands (Hari nan Sankapuluan)
Region of Origin: Maluku/Moluccas (Ternate)
Region of Rule: The Philippines
Founder: Kaicili Sidang nan Cico (Alfonso de Cico)
Timespan: 1823 - present

In a relatively complex scenario where the Kalamianen language was the principal lingua franca of the Philippine archipelago, a branch of the Cico dynasty of Ternate has formally established in 1607, as Kaicil Sidang was exiled to Manila by the Spaniard colonial authorities and his subsequent conversion to Roman Catholicism; his marriage to María Rosario de Tagean, a direct descendant of the former monarchs of Tundun, had establish himself as part of the native nobility. As Spain in this same scenario is less restrictive in relation to its colonies, the influx of European traders, including the infiltration of Iberian Protestants sent by the Dutch, proved to be beneficial to Alfonso (Kaicil Sidang) and his descendants, most especially in the period the English Roman Catholics arrived after the brief period of England's colonization of Manila; this culminated in a long-term secret plan of Francisco de Chicho (later as Francisco I) to overthrow Spaniard colonial rule with the help of his advisers Count Luis Rodríguez Varela and José Ortega; in fact, Andrés Novales was his secret protégé. The success of such conspiracy in the 12th of June, 1823, and the subsequent coronation of Francisco de Chicho using the Golden Salakot started the long-running campaign of unifying and consolidating the whole archipelago under the rule of the Cicos/Chichos.
Name: House of Tudor-Habsburg
Titles: King/Queen of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Spain, Netherlands
Region of origin: England and Spain
Region of rule: England, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, France, and the rest of Philip II's gigantic empire
Founder: Mary I of England & Philip II of Spain
Timespan: 1555-1700

Queen Mary I of England gave birth to a healthy son in 1555, just before she turned 39. This greatly disappointed her half-sister Elizabeth as well as her supporters who had hoped for a Protestant monarch on the throne. The boy, named Henry after his grandfather, would end up succeeding both his parents after the death of his half-brother Carlos. He took as wife the daughter of Mary, Queen of Scots: Margaret II of Scotland (the first being the maid of Norway) [1]. They ended up having eleven children, who married mainly into France and Austria (one of their daughters married Charles X of France [2] and thus carried on the bloodline there). While the name died out in the male line, there are still female-line dynasts within current monarchies today.

Name: Richelieu Dynasty
Titles: Protector of the Liberty of the Netherlands, Duke of Brabant, Count of Flanders and, later, King of the Netherlands
Region of Origin: France
Region of rule: Netherlands
Founder: Frans II (as protector, duke and count) or Hartmann-Jan I (as king)
Timespan: 1584-present


After the desastrous French Fury in 1583, François d'Anjou, Protector of the Liberty of the Netherlands, Duke of Brabant and Count of Flanders, was in a difficult position in Netherlands. His older brother, King Henri III of France, decided to send a French army in order to help him. To assume leadership over said army, Henri III chose an entirely reliable man: François du Plessis de Richelieu. These reinforcements saved François d'Anjou, allowing him to regain his authority over Netherlands. Not for long though, as François d'Anjou died of malaria in 1584. Out of fear of the French troops, the States General of the Netherlands elected François du Plessis de Richelieu as his successor. As a result, François du Plessis de Richelieu became Protector of the Liberty of the Netherlands, Duke of Brabant and Count of Flanders as Frans II (François d'Anjou was Frans I).

After Henri III's assassination in 1589, Frans II supported Henri IV in his war against the Leaguers. Because of that, Henri IV offered an extremely prestigious bride for Frans II's eldest son Henri: Éléonore de Bourbon-Condé, a true Princess of the Blood. However, Henri du Plessis de Richelieu died in a horse accident the day of the wedding. Frans II's second son Alphonse had chosen to become a monk. As a result, Éléonore married the third son: Armand-Jean du Plessis de Richelieu (OTL Cardinal Richelieu). Frans II forced the States General of the Netherlands to elect Armand-Jean as his successor, in his own lifetime. Thus, when Frans II died, Armand-Jean became Protector of the Liberty of the Netherlands, Duke of Brabant and Count of Flanders as Hartmann-Jan I.

However, the war against the Habsburgs was not over. Hartmann-Jan I spent decades fighting them, with the help of the King of France and the German Protestant Princes. In the end, the King of Spain had to recognize the independence of the Netherlands and the Emperor had to give to Hartmann-Jan I the innovative title of King of the Netherlands. All the following Kings of the Netherlands are descendants of Hartmann-Jan I and his wife Éléonore.
Name: House of Hohenberg
Titles: Archduke's of Alsace and Lorraine
Region of origin: Transleithania, Danubia.
Region of Rule: The German province of Alsace and Lorraine.
Founder: Maximilian the I
Timespan: From 1921 to the Present Day.

History: Following the victory of the central powers over the Entente, the big three - Italy, Germany and what was then known as Austria-Hungary, followed through with processes of deep re-organization, development, recovery, democratization and modernization, of which Germany's principal example of this movement is the 1921 electoral and provincial reforms. Kaiser Wilhelm III desired to unite Germany in the face of the post-war conditions in all of Europe, and thus many of Prussia's outlier provinces and those headless states part of the confederation were given over to new rulers.

The Province of Elsass-Lothringen, which was the principal aim of French revanchism had layed mostly destroyed in the aftermath of the war, despite the addition of Germany minor land gains such as the city of Nancy and many steel rich industrial condominiums had long clamored for its recognition as a self-ruling autonomous state. The acceptance of this demand brought onto the surprised provincial delegates, some of whom were French-speaking, the question of who was to be the ruler of the area.

The candidate settled upon was Maximilian of Hohenberg, a Morganatic member of the Habsburg dinasty. The fact that Maximilian was Austrian, but technically, still a German aided greatly in his election. Taking residence at Nancy, Maximilian and his Italian wife would go on to become heavily respected in the region for their down to earth attitude and their diligence in managing the affairs of the province alongside its government.

Archduke's Maximilian martyrdom after his capture and execution by communard officers come the second weltkrieg cemented the dinasty. Today, Maximilian's great grandson is the popular ruler of the region, whose patronage of Champions League winning side and Reichsliga champions FC Metz is well known.
Name: House of Tocco-Palaiologos
Title(s): Count Palatine of Kefalonia and Zakynthos, Despot of Epirus, Marquis of Montferrat, King of the Hellenes
Region of Origin: Benevento, Sicily
Region of rule: Kefalonia, Zakynthos, Epirus, Montferrat, Greece
Founder: Ugolino Tocco
Timespan: 12th Century - XXXX
History: The House of Tocco manages to retake their possessions in the Ionian Islands from the Venetians in the 16th century, and from there is able to thrive as one of Europe's minor sovereign families, somewhat unlike OTL where they became relatively minor Italian nobility. They manage to marry into the last branch of the Palaiologos (who they had a history of marriage with) inheriting the Marquisate of Monteferrat, and combining probably the two most important formerly sovereign Christian dynasties in Greece, pre-Ottomans. Into the 19th century, when the Greeks revolt against the Ottomans, the Tocco-Palaiologos' were quickly offered the leadership of the revolt, which was supported both by the Western powers and the Tocco's with the men they could raise from their Ionian possessions. The Tocco-Pailaiologos, having officially converted to Eastern Orthodoxy when they gained the throne of Greece, continue to rule Greece as Kings of the Hellenes to this day.

Name: Domitian-Flavian Dynasty
Title(s): Emperor Of the Roman Empire
Region of Origin: Rome
Region of rule: Roman Empire with the Borders of OTL Agricolas conquest in Britannia Germania up to the Elbe, OTL Dacia and weat of the Carpathians, and the Zagros Mountains in Mesopotamia
Founder: Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo
Timespan: 65AD-365

Corbulo only lived as emperor 10 years, his only son Gaius Domitius Corbulo having predeceased him in 61AD in Britannia, he named Titus Flavius Vespasianus as his hier, the man being his daughters father in law and a close second since his time in the east. After Vespasianus who died after 5 years on the throne, his son, son in law to Corbulo, Titus Flavius Vespasianus II became emperor reigning until 110AD, where upon his Grandson Titus Flavius Corbulo became emperor.

The Dynasty ended in 365AD after 300 years of Rule, and a golden age of expansion and peace, this was due to a plague killing the second last emperor Marcus Flavius Drusus and most of his family and relatives and nearly half the empires population and over 2/3 of those who lived in rome itself. The last emperor of the Dynasty was a teenage boy, direct descendant of the first emperors of the dynasty as well as augustus, Titus Flavius Domitius Octavianus who 30 days into his reign was murdered by a distant descendant of Augustus through another branch, Marcus Valerius Agrippa, which started a 60 year interegnum which had 30 legitimate emperors declared, and many others who tried to be named.

Name: Tyler dynasty (later restyled as the Watson dynasty)
Title(s): King of England and Protector of Wales (1386-1425) Emperor of Britain (1425-1431).
Region of Origin: Essex
Region of rule: Britain.
Founder: Walter ‘Wat’ Tyler
Timespan: 1386-1431
History: After the successful Folks’ War of 1381-85 England was ‘in want of a monarchy’. Wat Tyler, the most popular rebel leader, was duly elected by the Veteran’s Moot in November 1385 and coronated on New Year’s day 1386.
Walter I’s short reign was marked by ambitious land reform and fending off repeated attempts by the remaining Anglo-Normans to reinstate their rule from their refuges in Ireland and France.
Walter’s son Alfred succeeded him from 1392 and retained the line’s popularity, mostly due to his deft delegation of powers. However, some contemporary sources note displeasure among the emerging Patriciate at the royal family’s descent into decadence.
Alfred reigned until 1418 where upon he was succeeded by Walter II. The second Walter had been a keen student of warfare, biding his time for years to take a new course in contrast the Laissez Faire rule of his father.
Walter II personally led a campaign into Scotland, where a conspiracy of Burghers and Yeoman waited to initiate their own revolution against the aristocracy. However, upon the defeat of the Scottish King, many erstwhile supporters were aggrieved when Walter did not initiate a protectorate, but rather absorbed both Scotland and Wales into a new ‘Empire of Britain’.
Walter II was assassinated in 1429 (the culprit remaining a mystery to the present, with either a Scottish secessionist, English Republican, or Anglo-Norman suspected).
From there, the house fell into disrepair.
Alexander I was spiteful, petulant, hedonistic and snobbish. From the outset of his rule, he was considered to embody the very worst of the former Aristocracy, indeed, he wished to emulate them in many ways. He sought out a marriage not from among the nation, as had his forefathers, but to another Royal House. The established royalty of Europe were of course little interested in marrying into a house of peasant pretenders. In 1431 Alexander finally became engaged to the daughter of a Flemish Earl.
This was the catalyst for the Moot Coup, its members fearing the ultimate subversion of their new state. Almost no effort was made to defend Alexander's rule after the Moot's challenge and there was widespread jubilation when he was deposed.
Alexander was exiled to Flanders where he attempted to join the keep of his fiancé, however, the marriage was quickly called off. Thereafter he faded into obscurity, with reports stating that he saw out his days as a gong farmer.
The British Republican Federation is born.

Name: House of Nassau-Vrijburg
Title(s): King/Queen of Pernambouk
Region of Origin: Nassau Weilburg
Region of rule: Kingdom of Pernambouk
Founder: Frederick I
Timespan: 1806-today
History: After the forming of the Confederation of the Rhine, Napoleon started making pressure under Princes Frederick William, of Nassau-Weilburg, and Frederick August of Nassau-Usingen, for one of them to pledge loyalty to him and lead an unified Duchy of Nassau. Eventually, August accepted Napoleon proposal and William escaped with his family to the dutch colony of Pernambouk, in northeastern South America, in 1806. The colony had been ruled by a local regency since the Napoleonic invasion of the Netherlands and was starting to contemplate independence, which it eventually conquered on April 17, 1810. Upon arrival, Frederick William was offered the post of regent and later of King as the movements for independence culminated in the Schoonzit Proclamation, emancipating the nation. The royal house was named after the original house of Fredrick and after the royal palace of Pernambouk, the Vrijburg Palace. Today, the current monarch of Pernambouk is Alexandra III.
Name: House de Sade

Title(s): Emperor/Empress of France

Region of Origin: France

Region of rule: France, the Low Countries, Italy, portions of the former HRE

Founder: Donatien Alphonse François de Sade, known to history as Emperor Donatien I and variously called 'the Conqourer', 'the Glorious' (in the Empire only), 'the Devourer', and 'the High-Priest of Satan' (by the Catholic Church)

Current Head of House: Emperor Donatien IX Xavier

Timespan: 1793 - present

History: The House de Sade, once mere Comte/Marquis of France in service to the Bourbons, it was during the events of the French Revolution that the House de Sade would begin it's rise. The future Emperor was freed from the Bastille and despite his noble background ingratiated himself with the Revolutionaries and made several important contacts with the new French military, he managed to launch a coup against the revolutionaries when they began their so-called 'Great Terror' that became very unpopular in France. Then as the 'Council for Life' he led a campaign of conquests that would see much of Europe broken at his feet. In 1801 the Emperor made an official break with Republicanism and proclaimed himself Emperor, and he also promulgated his ideology of Sadism that would form the foundation of Imperial ideology well into the modern era.
Name: House of Adams

Title(s): King of America

Region of Origin: Great Britain

Region of rule: United Kingdoms of America

Founder: John I of America

Timespan: 1799 - 1826 (John I), 1835 - 1848 (John Quincy I), 1885 - 1894 (John Quincy II)

History: The House of Adams came into royal prominence during the 'Founders Period' of the America's elective monarchy. Founded by John Adams (or John I), he was elected as George I's preferred successor, though his cankerous personality made him difficult to work with. The second member of the House of Adams elected to the crown was John Quincy I, who expanded the Kingdom's infrastructure, but he had a similar temperament to his father which made his reign difficult. The final member of the House of Adams elected to the American crown was John Quincy II (grandson of John Quincy I) and was largely chosen as a Darkhorse compromise candidate, he preceded over the annexation of Hawaii and the creation of six new states in the Kingdom from unorganized territories. While the House of Adams still has several prominent members involved in politics, none have yet to become the fourth elected to the American crown.
Name: House of Lancastre
Titles: King of Portugal and Algarves, later King of Portugal, Galicia and Mauretania - a cadet branch of the Dinasty would become Emperors of Brazil in 1844.
Region of Origin: Coimbra, Portugal.
Region of Rule: Portugal and Galicia, Morocco, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, South Africa, the south of the Arabian Peninsula, Angola, Mozambique and the Pink Map territories the whole of Timor, Macau, and many Indonesian and Indian factories.
Founder: Jorge of Lancastre.
Timespan: 1501-1865 (Jorge I to Beatriz I) in Portugal, 1844 to the modern day in the Empire of Brazil (Manuel I to the current Emperor, Pedro II)

History: Born as the second, bastard son of King John II of Portugal, Jorge of Lancastre's eventual inheritance of the Portuguese throne left much to be desired - repeated attempts by his headstrong father to have him legitimized brought him no success, until his father's survival in 1495 from a supposed poisoning attempt led to the exile of his cousin, Manuel of Portugal, from the Kingdom. The Portuguese Nobility, who feared another culling at the furious hands of King John, would recognize the now-of-age Jorge as Infante of Portugal in the Cortes of Amarante in 1499, and with the eventual death of his father in 1501, from a now succesful poisoning attempt, Jorge was recognized as King of Portugal.

King Jorge's early reign was premeditated by the conflicts with his cousin Manuel of Beja, with his Habsburg patrons and their Castillian domains until the eventual death of the Duke of Beja from disentery while he laid siege to the city of Porto. Jorge would manage to negotiate a favorable treaty of recognition from Ferdinand of Aragon, marrying his youngest daughter, Mary of Aragon, with whom he would go on to establish his dinasty. Jorge, in a call back to John of Avis and in recognition of his bastard heritage, took the surname Lancastre for his dinasty, in recognition of the matriach of the Avis dinasty, Phillipa of Lancaster. Jorge would kickstart the Portuguese golden age (also called the Century of Splendid Isolation) where Portugal and it's navies would go on to start colonies in most of the world, to Jorge's reign being atributted the first colonies in Brazil, South Africa, India and Indonesia. Jorge, at the end of his reign, was perhaps the richest sovereign in the world, with a growing, expanding colonial empire that controlled a large swathe of South America and dominated the maritime routes of the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Alongside this, Jorge's reign would birthmark the start of the Portuguese Georgian age, a continuation of the Portuguese renaissance, which would come to produce myriads in arts, thinking, construction and the sciences, with it eventually spreading to nearby Europe.

One of the major achievements of the dinasty would be the conquest of Morocco in 1577-1584 and the Pampas war in 1702-1705, where Brazilian colonial marines and the Portuguese navy would sack Buenos Aires, while the Portuguese Legion in the homeland would defeat the armies of Ferdinand of Habsburg and seize Galicia with support from the French. The treaty of Olivença would see Galicia and many border cities in Leon and Badajoz handed to Portugal, while the Paraguay and Salado rivers would become the new Brazilian frontier.

The end of the Dinasty would finally come to an end with the reign of Beatriz I, the first woman to rule Portugal. The only child of her father, José II, her reign meant the loss of Brasil, as the Brazilians, whom had developed a strange equalist relation with the Portuguese metropolis, alongside an almost divination of the monarchy and the House of Lancastre was unwilling to fall under the rule of Beatriz and her husband, the French Prince Henri, Duke of Burgundy. Beatriz' uncle and Viceroy of Brazil, Manuel of Pernanbuco was convinced by the Cortes of Rio to accept to be crowned Emperor of a monarchist Brazil. His acceptance (and recognition by most, if not all of the world) marked the end of the "Fourth Portuguese Empire". The House of Borgonha would, after the death of Beatriz in 1865, become the ruling House of Portugal, in the person of her son, Pedro IV.

The House of Lancastre survives to this day in the form of Pedro IV and his children. The Emperor is a veteran of the army and is famous for his love of everything radical, which included jumping from a plane without the knowledge of the Secret Imperial Services, swimming and staying for half a day in a island full of snakes as a young man, where he was bitten and almost died of the venom. Pedro IV is married to Isabella of Borgonha, daughter of Luís, Duke of Évora and cousin to the current Portuguese Queen, Maria I. Their marriage is the first time any form of intermarriage has happened between the Brazilian and Portuguese royal houses.
Name: House of Valois-Tudor
Titles: King of England and Ireland, King of France, King of Spain
Region of Origin: England and France
Region of Rule: England, Ireland, France, Spain
Founder: Charles of Orleans and Elizabeth I
Timespan: 1545-present
The marriage of Charles of Orleans and Elizabeth Tudor happened after Anne Boleyn died giving birth to the longed for son of Henry. However this son would die just a year before his father, leaving Elizabeth heiress (as her sister Mary had chosen to enter a convent instead of signing the oath recognizing herself as bastard). She succeeded to the throne and married Charles of Orleans the youngest son of Francis I. While he never ruled France due to predeceasing his nephew Henry III (and thus spent his life in England with his beloved wife to whom he was faithful to and thus soothed her fears about marriage and intimacy), his second son with Elizabeth would succeed as Charles X of France (as the oldest son was destined to be Henry IX). During Elizabeth's reign she continued the rivalry with the Habsburgs but upon the death of both his parents her third son Edward (named after her dead brother) would marry the heiress of Philip II of Spain, Isabella Clara Eugenia and thus he ruled as king of Spain in right of his wife. The three brothers got along famously but their descendants would later fight each other over their inheritances especially when the male lines died out despite marrying into many different families. Nowadays the Valois-Tudor name is gone seeing as there are only cognatic lines left. But they still rule in every European monarchy to date.
