    Magellan’s death

    On 16 March 1521 (Julian calendar), Magellan sighted the mountains of what is now Samar while on a mission to find a westward route to the Moluccas Islands for Spain. This event marked the arrival of the first documented Europeans in the Archipelago. The following day, Magellan ordered his men to anchor their ships on the shores of Homonhon Island.

    There, Magellan befriended Rajah Kolambu and Rajah Siagu, king of Limasawa, who guided him to Cebu. There he met Rajah Humabon, the Rajah of Cebu. Then, Rajah Humabon and his queen were baptized into the Catholic faith, taking the Christian names Carlos, in honor of King Charles of Spain, and Juana, in honor of King Charles' mother. To commemorate this event, Magellan gave Juana the Santo Niño, an image of the infant Jesus, as a symbol of their new alliance and held their first mass in the coast.

    As a result of Magellan's influence with Rajah Humabon, an order had been issued to the nearby chiefs that each of them were to provide food supplies for the ships, and convert to Christianity.

    Most chiefs obeyed the order. However, Datu Lapu-Lapu, one of the two chiefs within the island of Mactan, was the only chieftain to show his opposition. Lapu-Lapu refused to accept the authority of Rajah Humabon in these matters. This opposition proved to be influential when Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's voyage chronicler, writes,

    Rajah Humabon and Datu Zula suggested to Magellan to go to the island of Mactan and force his subject chieftain Datu Lapu-Lapu to comply with his orders. Magellan saw an opportunity to strengthen the existing friendship ties with the ruler of the Visayan region and agreed to help him subdue the resistant Lapu-Lapu.

    When the body of Magellan was recovered by the warriors, Humabon ordered him to return the bodies of Magellan and some of his crew who were killed, and they would be given as much merchandise as they wished. Lapu-Lapu refused.

    The Capture of Victoria

    After Elcano left Sugbu, Elcano was defeated by a Bruneian Prince named Ache and his ship named Victoria was brought into Manila Bay and they were transferred to Brunei as captives and were later rescued and the Portuguese who would have Elcano and his crew ransomed by the Portuguese and they were returned to Spain, according to Pigafetta the capture by the Bruneians would make the Bruneians aware of the Spanish plans in their own Empire which would make them cautious of the Spanish.

    The Bruneians would be aware of the Spanish plans in colonizing the Archipelago due to the capture by the Bruneians of the Elcano expedition.

    The Bruneians would cultivate the peace they had established with the people of north of their lands in Saludong who they seized lands from in the North including the City of Tondo that was precious to them and the marriages of the two Bruneian Princesses Panginoan and later Kandarapa to the Northerners which would result to peace in the north and spread of islam, which would result in the establishment of the Sultanate of Binalatongan in the north in the late 16th century which would rule the North of the Island of Saludong.

    On 1524 on their return, Elcano would report to Charles V about the conditions of their return and their captor Bruneians, Catherine of Aragon would also deliver a healthy son named Henry, Prince of Wales on November 2, 1522, leading to her death at the age of 37 years old.

    The End of the Spanish Islas de San Lazaro

    The Spanish would attempt to claim the lands of Butuan and Sugbu via Loaisa and convert them to Christianity in 1530’s however those attempts would turn into failure when the Bruneians would ransack the Christian settlements in Sugbu, and the Christian converts in Sugbu and Butuan would be turned into Dhimmis by the Bruneians.

    The Bruneians would be able to foil the Spanish plans in the lands that they are ruling and they would have the kin of Lapu Lapu as the new rulers of Sugbu and Butuan which would mean that the Spanish would have lost the lands that they would make as the trading place from Mexico to China and Abdul Kahar would call the end of the Spanish attempts in Colonization as their own victory.

    Effects of the loss to the Spanish

    The loss of the Spanish to the Bruneians in the East would be a plus to the Portuguese, however, the Spanish would not give up in Maluku which they would want to have and the Portuguese would give Maluku as the dowry of Princess Maria Manuela of Portugal, however the Spanish would never be able to move on with such a loss with the Muslim Bruneians and the Bruneians are gloating on the east and happy on their own victory.

    Margaret of Angouleme would marry Henry VIII who was just in the process of grieving his former wife Catherine, Margaret of Angouleme would give birth to a son named Edward, duke of York on May 10, 1526 and a daughter named Elizabeth on June 2, 1524.

    Drunk on Power
    Abdul Kahar would be drunk on power that he would be able to talk to his cousin, Rajah Aceh and thank him about what he had done for him and also told him that his problems in the eastern flank has been done and he would not even need to worry about losing his empire to the Spanish, although the only issue would be the north about Tondo and the Northerners who claim it.

    Abdul Kahar would send a message to Suleyman the Magnificent telling him that he is also great for destroying the Hungarian troops in Mohacs and killing their own monarch and they are both great, however, Rajah Aceh would warn Abdul Kahar that the Portuguese and the Northerners from Saludong or the pagans from Mindanao might ally with Portugal to reclaim the lands of that they are now ruling in their dynasty like Tondo area and Jambangan.

    John III of Portugal’s laugh

    John III of Portugal would hear the aborted and failed Eastern colonies of the Spanish in the east, the Islas of San Lazaro and the Portuguese were happy that they would have a monopoly on the colonization on the East Indies and the Asians and his wife Catherine of Austria would have her own collection of Asian wares.

    John III of Portugal would laugh at the loss of Charles V and he is happy that he has the monopoly on the colonization of the East despite the fact that the Portuguese had failed to talk with the Sundanese, although the Portuguese would have some strong control over the Spice Islands and Lesser Sunda Islands.

    John III of Portugal would not know that the Spanish would be more eager to gain the inheritance of Portugal in the coming decades.

    Sweating death

    On 1532, Henry, Prince of Wales, the only son of Catherine of Aragon and Henry VIII would die due to the disease that claimed his uncle, Arthur, making Edward, the Duke of York, the son Henry VIII and Margaret as the heir of Henry VIII and the betrothal between Francis III, duke of Brittany and Mary Tudor is made, Mary Tudor is said to be beautiful and looks similar as her mother, the late Catherine of Aragon, however it is broken because she refused the match.

    Due to the death of Henry, Prince of Wales, Edward, Duke of York, the future Edward VI would be the heir of Henry VIII, Margaret of Angouleme would fail to make Henry VIII favor his children with her than the ones with Catherine of Aragon.

    Mary Tudor would marry Philip of Palatinate Neuburg on 1540 rather than Francis III, duke of Brittany as she does not want to consent of a marriage that she does not like.

    note:
    I made Mary Tudor similar to Eleanor Plantagenet, daughter of Edward I and Isabella Plantagenet, daughter of Edward III.
