Birth of Spain New
On November 10, 1153, Blanche of Navarre would give birth to a daughter named Maria to Henry IV of Castile which was a bid to save her marriage to Henry IV of Castile.[1]
On 1469, Mary of Burgundy’s betrothal with Ferdinand of Aragon and Nicholas would be broken in favor of a rich betrothal between Archduke Edward and Mary of Burgundy who would inherit the lands of the childless Archduke Sigsmund, Prince Ferdinand would have ended up marrying Infanta Isabella of Castile and due to the fact that Mary of Burgundy herself would have married Archduke Edward on 1472, who will be seen as a man of culture and due to the fact that his uncle, Sigismund would have no surviving heir at this point and Charles the Bold would give the Landgrave of Upper Alsace as the dowry of Mary of Burgundy aside from her already rich dowry and the restoration of the county of Luxembourg to the wife of Archduke Christopher, Margaret.
Ferdinand would end up marrying Isabella of Castile and Isabella of Aragon’s niece, Maria would marry the future John II of Portugal in 1469.

Margaret of York New
On 1474, Margaret of York would announce a pregnancy, which would not delight the Landgravine of Upper Alsace but Christopher would say to the Landgrave of Upper Alsace to never mind as the Habsburgs would have an ally in the west.
The son would have been born in May 10, 1475 named Philip of Burgundy, Count of Charolais.
The Habsburgs would have miscalculated the birth of the heir to Valois-Burgundy as a benefit until the Valois-Burgundy inherited France in the 1500s, as it was said that the Valois-Burgundy’s inheritance of France would have made Burgundy integrated to France and the Habsburgs and the English would instigate rebellions in the Netherlands against the French later on.
Archduke Christoph would have been given a letter by Isabella of Castile, wife of Ferdinand the Duke of Girona, his relative to poison the infant Philip of Burgundy but he would not do so as he would have faith in the alliance with Burgundy.

On 1475, Maria, wife of John of Portugal would inherit Castile crowning her as Maria of Castile with Blanche of Navarre as the Dowager Queen.
On 1479, John II of Aragon would die and Navarre and Aragon would be partitioned between Castile and Aragon which would be an issue between the two countries but the between the Castilian Dowager Queen Blanche and her brother, Ferdinand II of Aragon as well as the betrothal between their eldest son Infante Alfonso(December 10, 1473) and Infanta Isabel would be arranged on 1479.

One of those two paragraphs has to go away. Also, break that sentence into three.
